Wave of car bombings kills 14 in Baghdad
Wednesday 25 January 2012
Fourteen people were killed and more than 75 injured in car bombings across Baghdad yesterday, as violence surged in Iraq a month after the last US soldiers left the country. The first attack targeted a gathering of day labourers in Sadr City. Police said eight were killed and 21 wounded.
Minutes later, a car blew up near a pastry shop in the same district, killing three people and injuring 26.
Later in the morning, two more cars laden with explosives detonated, killing three people and wounding 29.
