Twin Car Bombs Kill 10 in Baghdad

Baghdad, Iraq

Iraqi security officials say two car bombs exploded at two five-star hotels in Baghdad, killing at least 10 people.

The first explosion occurred in the parking lot of the Babylon Hotel late Thursday, killing six people and wounding 14 others.

Moments later, another car bomb exploded outside a former Sheraton Hotel, killing four people and wounding 13.

Nobody claimed responsibility, but Iraq is seeing almost daily attacks that have been frequently claimed by the Islamic State group, which seized a large swath of the country last year.

Some material for this report comes from AP, AFP and Reuters.
