At least six killed in twin bomb attacks at Baghdad's largest shopping district

Twin bombs kill at least six civilians in an attack inside a building in Baghdad's largest shopping district. The blasts set the entire building on fire. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) (UNIDENTIFIED) BAGHDAD RESIDENT, SAYING : "A bomb went off inside the perfume stores complex. Many people have been burned inside and people's shops were damaged." No one is claiming responsibility for the attacks. But, Sunni Islamists and other insurgents have been regaining ground in a violent campaign to destabilize Iraq's Shi'ite-led government. More than 1,000 people were killed in attacks across Iraq in January alone -- in a trend of intensifying violence that made last year the bloodiest since 2008.
