Iraq bombings kill dozens

The site of a deadly bombing near a police headquarters in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk.

Seven people were killed in the blast, and another 30 were wounded.

But this is just one of a series of explosions that hit towns and cities across Iraq on Tuesday.

The wave of car bombs and roadside IEDs left at least 39 people dead, and wounded almost 200 others.

The deadliest of them hit in Kerbala, where twin explosions killed at least 13 and wounded scores more.

The violence comes ahead of next week's Arab League summit in Baghdad - widely seen as the country's debut on the regional stage following the withdrawal of U.S. troops last year - and a test for Iraq's security forces.
