Dozens killed in attacks across Iraq

At least 27 people have died in attacks across Iraq on Sunday.

Two car bombs exploded in the southern city of Basra, and in southern Baghdad there were car bombs in six different locations.

In the northern city of Mosul, gunmen shot dead six policemen at a checkpoint.

The attacks were all aimed at Shi’ite Muslims. It’s thought Sunni Islamist insurgents and Al Qaeda are behind them although no-one has claimed responsibility.
