Iraqis gather at the site of a bomb attack in central Baghdad on July 31.
Two car bombs have killed at least 19 people and wounded dozens of others in a Shi'ite neighborhood in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The double blast in Karradah, a busy shopping district across the Tigris River from the Green Zone, occurred during the middle of rush hour as streets were full of people heading home from work.

Police said the first car blew up near a restaurant at a Karradah square, near a police station and a security checkpoint.

Meanwhile, the second car blew up outside a passport office a few kilometers away.

The explosions come amid a recent wave of violence in Baghdad.

On July 23, more than 100 people were killed in coordinated attacks against mostly Shi'ite Muslim targets.

Al-Qaeda's local affiliate, the Islamic State of Iraq, claimed responsibility for those attacks.

Al-Qaida ,, Saudi Arabia is in fact the face of the terrorists Zionists represented by Israel & the USA ,,, those criminals are blood thirsty for the Iraqi blood and souls ,,, I wonder what kind of so called Muslims those extreme salafis & wahabis who have been spreading such malicious crimes in Iraq and elsewhere ,,, till when will the Saudis keep this dirty act of killing innocent people among whom are children and women ,, Why do the Saudis have all this hatred against us ... crystal clear ,, it is a sectarian cause ,,, as long as there are shia in Iraq ,, they will never stop this slaughtering plan ,,, what kind of so called Muslims are they who kill innocent people in Ramadhan ??? May all these killers rot in Hell ,,
