At least 29 killed in Baghdad

At least 29 killed in Baghdad
It’s been another day of deadly violence in Iraq, with at least 14 people killed and several injured in northern Baghdad by gunmen who attacked a bus carrying civilian employees of a Shia religious group.

The gunmen set off a car bomb before spraying the minibus with bullets as it carried the employees to work.

At least 15 others were killed in three car bomb blasts near a petrol station in a south-west district of Baghdad.

The U.S. army said one soldier was killed in combat on Monday, and five other soldiers were injured when gunmen attacked a US military patrol.
