Car Bombs Kill 25 in Baghdad

  • VOA News

Multiple car bombs have exploded in majority Shi'ite areas of Iraq's capital, killing at least 25 people and wounding 75 others.

At least eight explosions hit Baghdad on Tuesday, as Iraq continues to see its worst violence since 2008.

The bombs left charred cars and damaged buildings in the Sadr City neighborhood and in downtown Baghdad.

The United Nations says at least 3,500 civilians and Iraqi security forces have been killed this year. More than 7,800 civilians died in violence in Iraq in 2013.
