At Least 22 Killed By Wave Of Bombings In Baghdad

Iraqi officials say a series of car bombs in three mainly Shi’ite districts of Baghdad have killed at least 15 people, just hours after a suicide bombing in another part of the capital killed at least seven.

The suicide bombing early on July 19 targeted a police checkpoint in the Abud Dsheer district of southern Baghdad.

It was followed by three bombings that took place within 10 minutes of each other in Baghdad’s southwestern district of Bayaa, the capital’s northern neighborhood of Khazimiyah, and Baghdad’s western district of Jihad.

At least 42 people were wounded by the attacks.
