35 killed, 138 wounded in wave of attacks in Iraq

At least 35 people were killed and 138 others wounded in a wave of bomb attacks in Iraq on Monday, most of them in the capital city of Baghdad, interior ministry and police sources said.

On Monday evening, at least nine car bomb attacks struck Baghdad, mostly in Shiite districts, killing 28 people and injuring 125 others, an interior ministry source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Two back-to-back car bombings in the Jihad neighborhood in southwestern Baghdad led to the deaths of seven people and wounded 30 civilians, the source said.

Six people were killed and 30 others injured when another car bomb exploded in the Karrada district in central Baghdad, he said, adding that a car bomb in the Husseiniya district in northeastern Baghdad killed five civilians and wounded 15 others.

A car bomb exploded in the Nahrawan area in eastern Baghdad, killing three people and wounding seven others, while another car bomb in Al-amana in southeastern Baghdad killed two and injured nine, the source said.

A parked car exploded in the Maalif area in southwestern Baghdad, killing two people and wounding 14 others, he said.

A car bomb attack near the al-Samarrai mosque in the New Baghdad district of the capital killed one civilian and wounded 10 others, while another car bomb exploded at the intersection of the Shurta Al-rabiaa in southwestern Baghdad, killing two people and wounding 10 others.

Also on Monday evening, four civilians were killed and 10 others wounded when a roadside bomb exploded inside a popular cafe south of Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad, a local police said.

Earlier in the day, a counter-terrorism official, an Iraqi army officer and a soldier were killed in two suicide bomb attacks in Iraq's Salahudin and Nineveh provinces, the police said.

A suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest blew himself up near Colonel Ghazi al-Jubouri, head of the counter-terrorism office of Salahudin province, while he went to his car at the park of Salahudin University in the provincial capital city of Tikrit, some 170 km north of Baghdad, a provincial police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Jubouri was just leaving the university with his two bodyguards after finishing an exam at the law faculty, when the bomber approached him. The two guards were wounded, the source said.

In the northern province of Nineveh, a suicide car bomber struck an Iraqi army patrol in the eastern part of the provincial capital city of Mosul, killing an officer and a soldier and wounding a civilian, another police source anonymously told Xinhua.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the al-Qaida front in Iraq, in most cases, was responsible for such bombings in the country.

High-profile bomb attacks are still common in Iraq despite the dramatic decrease since its peak in 2006 and 2007, when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings.
