Iraq blasts injure at least 20

4 years ago44 views



A series of attacks across Iraq Sunday leave at least 20 injured, authorities say.

A car is reduced to glass and tires.

Two of the car bombs rocked a popular civilian market south of the capital Baghdad.

Another car bomb went off outside offices of the traffic police in the Samawa province.

Police also say people were wounded when a car bomb went off close to a gathering of pilgrims at a religious ceremony in central Basra.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Critics of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki say his Shi'ite-led government's treatment of the minority Sunni group has fueled feelings of resentment -- sentiments which are being exploited by the al Qaeda militant group.
