At least ten people were killed and dozens wounded in a string of separate car bombings in southern Iraq on August 20. Footage from the town of Haswa, near the city of Hilla, shows a damaged building and destroyed cars in the aftermath of an explosion that killed four and wounded 18. In recent months, there has been a sharp rise in sectarian violence in Iraq between minority Sunnis and majority Shi'a. (Reuters video)
