Blasts claim at least another 10 dead in Iraq
At least 10 people have been killed and dozens wounded in a series of car bombings in Iraq. The blasts took place in the mainly Shi’ite districts of the country.

A parked car exploded near a hospital in a Shi’ite district of Baghdad, killing at least five.

An hour earlier, another car bomb struck a petrol station in the Shiite city of Hillah killing at least two people and wounding 22.

And in northern Iraq, a car exploded around 7a.m. local time, after the driver parked it near Iraqis looking for work. The driver and two workers were killed and 11 others  were wounded.
