Dozens killed in wave of bomb attacks across Iraq

A series of attacks across Iraq killed at least 32 people on Tuesday ( September 17), police and medical sources said. In the capital, a series of car bombs exploded in Shi'ite neighborhoods in southern and eastern districts,. It was not immediately clear who carried out the attacks, but Sunni militants who view Shi'ites as non-believers have been stepping up their insurgency and striking with a ferocity not seen in years. Two car bombs hit the Shi'ite neighbourhood of Zafaraniya in southeastern part of the capital. A third car bomb exploded at the commercial area of Bataween in downtown Baghdad, a fourth car bomb exploded in Al-nasr square in Baghdad's Al-Sadoun street. More than two years of civil war in neighboring Syria have aggravated deep-rooted sectarian divisions and shaken Iraq's fragile coalition of Shi'ite, Kurdish and Sunni factions.
