BAGHDAD, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Three explosions in one location in northern Baghdad killed 28 people and wounded 68 people Monday, the Iraqi Interior Ministry said.

The first bomb exploded in a parked car in a marketplace in the Kasrah section of the Adhamiya neighborhood. That blast was followed by a second car bombing, CNN reported. As the crowd gathered around the damaged vehicles, a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden vest.

Ministry officials said it was the deadliest attack in Baghdad in nearly four months.
