Iraqi policemen inspect the site of a suicide attack at Imam al-Kadhim University in northern Baghdad April 20, 2014.
A series of attacks, including a coordinated assault on a Shi'ite university in Baghdad, killed at least 14 people and wounded nearly 50 in Iraq on Sunday.

A suicide bomber and several gunmen targeted Imam al-Kadhim University, killing five people and wounding more than 13 others.

Medical officials confirmed causality figures, but there was no official statement on the violence.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the bombings, but violence across Iraq has increased as militants look to undermine the Shi'ite-led government ahead of the parliamentary election on April 30.
