Dozens killed in Baghdad car bombings

Baku, 11 May, AZERTAC

Two more car bombs have rocked Baghdad, reportedly killing at least 22 people, hours after a bombing in the Iraqi capital reportedly claimed at least 63 lives, according to Sky News.

One blast hit the entrance to Kadhimiya, a predominately Shiite Muslim district in the northwest of the Iraqi capital. Reports say at least 15 people were killed.

Another bomb went off in a mostly Sunni district of western Baghdad, reportedly killing seven and wounding 20.

The first blast, also a car bombing, happened during Wednesday morning's rush hour at a crowded market in a predominantly Shiite area of Baghdad's eastern district of Sadr City.

It set nearby shops and market stalls on fire, as a crowd of angry residents and investigators gathered at the scene and around the charred remains of the car.
