Bombs Kill at Least 20 across Iraqi Capital

TEHRAN (FNA)- Bomb blasts in Baghdad killed at least 20 more people.

In and around Baghdad, eight people including a soldier were killed in a series of bomb blasts outside mosques.

Later on Friday, a car bomb killed seven in a busy shopping area in the South of the city. In the capital's Shiite stronghold of Sadr City, a motorcycle bomb exploded near a kiosk selling falafel, killing five.

No group claimed responsibility for any of the attacks.

Violence is down across Iraq since its peak in 2006 and 2007, but attacks remain common, and the deadliest are typically carried out by militants linked to the Al Qaeda.
