At least 35 people killed in bomb blasts in Baghdad


BAGHDAD: At least 35 people were killed and dozens of others were injured in a series of bombings that ripped through markets across the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Tuesday afternoon.

An official from the interior ministry and medical sources said the car bombs targeting markets in both Sunni and Shiite areas of the city struck at around 15:00 GMT.

This comes a day after the United Nations announced that more than 2,500 Iraqis have died in violent attacks since April this year, with May – which saw over 1,000 people killed – being the deadliest month since the height of sectarian bloodletting in 2006-07.

In June, 761 people fell victim to militant attacks in different parts of the country.
