Multiple car bombings in predominantly Shi’ite districts of Baghdad killed at least 30 people on Saturday, police and medics said, the latest in a series of attacks that threaten to sink Iraq once again into full-blown sectarian conflict.
Most of the attacks struck in busy commercial areas where people had gathered to shop and socialize after breaking their daily fast for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The deadliest explosion took place in the northern neighborhood of Tobchi, where 10 people were killed when a car bomb exploded in a busy commercial street.
“I was standing near my shop with friends when we saw a parked car that aroused our suspicions. We shouted for the driver, but no-one answered” said shopkeeper Said Mohammed Murad.
