Bombings kill 10 in Iraq
At least 10 people were killed and dozens wounded in three separate bombings Sunday in Iraq, security officials said, dpa reported.
An explosion near a football field in the town of Maadan south of Baghdad left six people dead and 11 wounded, independent website Alsumaria News reported, citing authorities.
Two other civilians were killed and 20 injured when a bomb exploded in a local football field in Baquba, north-east of Baghdad, reported the Iraqi National News Agency. A blast in a marketplace in central Baghdad killed two people and injured eight, the agency.
Iraq has seen a sharp increase in violence in recent months amid protests by the Sunni minority against Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's Shiite-dominated government.
More than 1,000 Iraqis, the vast majority civilians, were killed in attacks in May, according to the United Nations.
