More than 40 dead in wave of bombings in and near Baghdad
BAGHDAD - Bombings in and around the Iraqi capital today have killed more than 40 people.
Eleven were killed when a car bomb tore through a commercial area in the sprawling Shiite district of Sadr City.
Deadly attacks also targeted several other Baghdad neighborhoods and a town just south of the capital.
Today's wave of bombings follows a suicide truck bombing late yesterday that killed a top Iraqi police officer and seven other people in the town of Beiji, north of Baghdad.
There's been no claim of responsibility for the attacks, but authorities say yesterday's attack in Beiji bore the hallmarks of Islamic State militants.
