Car bombs kill 24 across Baghdad as violence rages

BAGHDAD: A string of car bombs killed at least 24 people across Baghdad on Friday night, medical and police officials said, amid a surge of violence in the capital.

No one immediately said they were responsible for the blasts, but other attacks in recent weeks have been claimed by militant group Islamic State, which is battling the government and has seized large parts of neighbouring Syria.

A parked car blew up near a coffee shop in the area of Baladiyat, killing nine people and wounding 28, the officials said.

Another blast killed nine and wounded 28 in the neighborhood of Slaikh, while a third car bomb blew up by a row of liquor stores in the affluent Karrada neighborhood, killing six and wounding 14 others, the officials added.

The attack came the day after bombs killed 36 in Baghdad and areas bordering the capital. –REUTERS
