Suicide Bombing Hit Baghdad

At least 28 people were killed by three bombs that exploded just moments apart in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The first two blasts were car bombs and then a suicide bomber detonated his charges in the crowd that had gathered to help.

Another 68 people were injured in the blasts, which took place during morning rush hour in the Shia area of Kasra.

North of Baghdad, in Baquba, a female suicide car bomber attacked a US-allied militia checkpoint, killing six people.

The triple-bomb attack in Baghdad is one of the deadliest in Iraq in several months.

Its unclear how many people were killed and wounded in each of the explosions.
