Attacks Kill 12 In Iraqi Market

Two car bombs and a suicide attacker have killed at least 12 people in Iraq.

Officials say the blasts erupted Monday in a food market in the mainly Shi'ite town of Jadida al-Shat, some 40 kilometers north of Baghdad.

The attacks come a day after a suicide car bomb in the Iraqi capital killed seven people and wounded at least 18 others.

Sunday's blast struck the Shi'ite neighborhood of Kadhimiyah in northern Baghdad.

No group has claimed responsibility for the latest attacks.

Violence in Iraq has escalated in recent weeks, raising concern of a return to widespread sectarian attacks. Officials have blamed recent violence on Sunni Islamist insurgents.
