Bomb attacks claim 12 lives around Iraqi capital

At least twelve people have reportedly been killed and less than a dozen others wounded when separate bomb attacks struck public places and pro-government Sunni fighters around the capital, Baghdad.
Iraqi security and medical officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said four people lost their lives and nine others sustained injuries on Friday when a blast ripped through a commercial street in the capital’s southeastern New Baghdad district.
A bomb also went off near an outdoor market in Dora neighborhood of southern Baghdad, killing three shoppers.
Separately, three people were killed as a bomb explosion occurred near a café in the Iraqi capital’s southeastern suburbs.
Two anti-al-Qaeda Sahwa fighters were also killed when an improvised explosive device exploded in southern Baghdad.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the bombings, but such attacks are usually blamed on the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.
