Tuesday 06 April 2010
At least 11 people were killed and 72 others injured in explosions at residential buildings across Baghdad today, an Iraq military official said.
The death toll was expected to rise.
Major General Qassim al-Mousawi, a spokesman for the city's operations command centre, said the blasts wrecked apartment buildings in three neighbourhoods.
At least one explosion hit central Baghdad, near the Culture Ministry.
The explosions come two days after suicide bombings targeting foreign embassies in the Iraqi capital killed at least 40 people.
