Dozens die in Iraq blasts

The Ur district of Baghdad was the scene of the single deadliest bombing in a night of violence across the Iraqi capital. At least 11 people lost their lives here when a minibus packed with explosives blew up at a bus station. They were among at least 24 killed in a wave of bomb blasts targeting Shi'ite areas of the city. On the same night there were car bomb blasts near two Shi'ite mosques. One of the attacks happened here in the Karrada district of the capital. The death toll rose with another car bombing in the west of the city. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bloodshed. But Shi'ites are often the target of attacks by Sunni Islamist insurgents who've been regaining ground in Iraq during the last year and have overrun several towns in recent weeks.
