20 Killed in Baghdad Blasts

Iraqi officials say a series of explosions in Baghdad has killed at least 20 people and wounded dozens of others.

Authorities say the blasts Sunday hit Shi'ite districts.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility.

The attacks come one day after a suicide bomber killed a senior military intelligence officer and two of his bodyguards in northern Iraq. Officials said Brigadier General Ali Aouni was killed when the bomber set off his explosives as Aouni was leaving his house in Tal Afar.

Iraq has seen an increase in attacks in recent weeks.
