Bombs in Baghdad and northern Iraq killed at least 41 people and wounded more than 80 on Thursday, police said, just over a week after U.S. troops handed security in city centres to local forces.

Two suicide attacks in Tal Afar, a town 420 km (260 miles) northwest of Baghdad that is mainly home to minority Turkmen, killed 34 people and wounded 60.

One suicide bomber detonated an explosives vest, followed by another suicide attack just as people responded to the first, said a police official in Nineveh province, where groups like al Qaeda have taken advantage of tensions between Sunni Arabs and ethnic Kurds to maintain a campaign of violence.

In Baghdad, seven people were killed and 20 were wounded by two bomb blasts in a market in Sadr City, a poor, Shi’ite Muslim area of the Iraqi capital.
