Baghdad bombings claim 15 lives

At least 15 people have been killed and more have been wounded in four bomb explosions that rocked a neighborhood in the north of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, Press TV reported.

The first explosions took place around 8:30 p.m. (17:30 GMT) on Thursday in Baghdad's Sadr City, AFP quoted security officials as saying.

The interior ministry official put the toll at 15 dead and 31 wounded, while the defense ministry official said 16 had been wounded.

Both sources confirmed women and children were among the casualties.

An earlier report had said a car bomb targeted the office of influential Iraqi cleric Moqtada al-Sadr in Baghdad.
