35 dead, at least 100 injured in Iraq blasts

Iraqi officials say a wave of bombings has hit the capital and cities in the north, killing at least 35 people and wounding more than 100 others, Voice of America informs. Authorities said many of the attacks Thursday – a mix of car bombs and roadside bombs – appeared to target security forces. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings, which broke a period of relative quiet in Iraq. Near simultaneous suicide attacks and car bombings in eight cities last month killed at least 46 people and wounded more than 200 others. Those attacks came days before Baghdad hosted an Arab League summit.
