Twin car bombs in Iraqi capital kill 31


A double car bombing in Baghdad has killed up to 31 people and wounded over 100 more.

If the figures are confirmed, it would be the Iraqi capital’s deadliest day in a month.

The near-simultaneous explosions rocked different areas of the city as commuters headed to work.

A bustling commercial site was targeted in the western residential district of Mansour. Further north, a blast hit a National Security Ministry building. One witness reported that a minibus was abandoned by its driver who said he had to see a doctor. Minutes later it exploded.

The attacks come three weeks after the US military formally ended combat operations in Iraq. Tension is also simmering six months after an inconclusive election.
