Six car bombs kill at least 15 in Baghdad

Feb. 17, 2013 at 7:33 AM

BAGHDAD, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Six car bombs shook Baghdad's Shiite neighborhoods Sunday, killing at least 15 people and wounding 62 others, police said.

A security official told IraqiNews.com: "Most of the explosions took place in Sadr city while other bombings hit Kamaliya, Habibiya and Saydiya areas."

CNN said the bombings targeted open markets in Shiite neighborhoods.

Although violence in Baghdad has dropped significantly, instances like Sunday's attack continue in the run-up to next month's 10-year anniversary of the U.S-led invasion of Iraq, CNN said.
