BAGHDAD (AP) - A series of explosions rocked Baghdad Thursday morning, killing dozens of people and injuring hundreds more.

Iraqi officials say the death toll has climbed to 57 and nearly 200 people were wounded in the attacks.

Two roadside bombs exploded in western Baghdad while another blast was heard in the eastern Baghdad neighborhood of Karrada.

The violence is the worst to hit Baghdad in months.

The attacks targeted various neighborhoods around the city in an apparently coordinated campaign of violence designed to wreak havoc.
