Scores Killed, Many More Hurt In Wave Of Iraqi Bombings

Several car bombings and a suicide bombing have hit areas in northern Iraq, killing or wounding scores of people.

Five car bombs exploded in the northern city of Mosul late on June 10, killing 29 people and wounding dozens more, according to medical and military officials speaking on condition of anonymity.

Casualties were also reported in bombings in Tikrit and Tuz Khurmato, though no figures were provided.

Earlier in the day, two car bombs and a suicide bomber in another vehicle killed at least 13 people and wounded some 50 others at a produce market in the town of Jadidat al-Shatt, near Baquba.

A car bomb at a fish market in the town of Taji, some 25 kilometers north of Baghdad, killed at least seven people and wounded 16.

The June 10 spike in violence heightens concerns of sectarian violence in Iraq.
