Coordinated blasts across Iraq kill 26


Coordinated attacks across Iraq in Shiite neighbourhoods, security forces, and other targets have killed at least 26.

The town of Taji, once an al-Qaeda stronghold, had the deadliest attack when three explosive-rigged cars went off. Eight died and 28 were injured in the back-to-back blasts.

After the car bombs in Taji, police say the suicide bomber set off his explosive-rigged car in the Shula neighbourhood in northwest Baghdad. One was killed and seven wounded.

In Baghdad’s Karradah neighbourhood, another car bomb went off next to a police patrol. It killed an officer and a civilian, and injured eight.

At least 94 were injured in the attacks across the country.
