Twin blasts kill at least 3 in northern Iraq

Twin explosions in northern Iraq have killed at least three people and wounded 26. The blasts leveled parts of a residential district in Tuz Khurmato, about 170km north of Baghdad. The city is part of a territory home to a sometimes volatile ethnic mix of Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen. Sources say a truck bomb exploded in a Shi'ite Turkmen neighbourbood followed minutes later by a car bomb. The blasts - which happened Sunday - were part of a bloody weekend in Iraq. Scattered attacks on Saturday left 30 dead across the country and were part of a recent wave of sectarian violence inflamed by the civil war in Syria. In May, more than 1,000 Iraqis were killed, the deadliest month in six years.
