Two car bombs exploded in the main southern port city of Basra, killing seven people and wounding 35, the officials said.
In the Iraqi capital, seven car bombs and a roadside bomb hit eight different areas of Baghdad, killing six people and wounding 57. And in Samarra, north of Baghdad, another car bomb killed two Sahwa anti-Al-Qaeda fighters and wounded 12, while a roadside bomb in the north Iraq city of Mosul wounded three people.
Violence in Iraq has fallen from its peak in 2006 and 2007 but attacks are still common, killing more than 200 people in each of the first five months of this year, according to figures tallied from official sources. AFP
