Nine people were killed and others were injured in a spate of car bombs that targeted areas of the capital Baghdad on Tuesday.


At least six people were killed and many others were injured in twin car bombs in Baghdad’s Sadr city.


An interior ministry official said the first bomb was exploded through a group of workers at around 6:45 am (0345 GMT) while the second exploded outside a bakery half an hour later.

A third car bomb exploded in Shula, a northwestern district of the capital, killing two people and wounding 16, while a fourth killed one person and wounded 13 in the northern neighborhood of Al-Hurriya, the official said.


The bombings are the latest in a spate of attacks in Iraq. More than 200 people have been killed in January.
