Multiple Bombings Hit Iraq

by VOA News

A series of bombings across Iraq has killed at least 14 people.

Security and hospital sources say the deadliest attacks were in the northern province of Kirkuk, where four bombs killed at least nine people and wounded dozens more.

A car bomb blast in the southern city of Hilla killed four people, while another car bomb in the capital, Baghdad, killed one person and wounded several others.

Violence across Iraq is down sharply from its peak in 2006 and 2007.  However, September was Iraq's deadliest month in two years, with 365 people killed in unrest.
