Bombings Kill 10 in Iraq

by VOA News

Iraqi officials say multiple bombs have exploded in Baghdad, killing at least 10 people and wounding 39 others.

Most of the blasts Wednesday were car bombs, including one that killed at least three people in the Karrada district in the central part of the capital.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.

Iraq is experiencing an outbreak of violence stretching back to last year that is the worst the country has seen since 2008. The United Nations said more than 7,800 civilians were killed in 2013. Data from the U.N. and local officials indicate an estimated 1,600 deaths already this year.
