[Original post] At least four people were killed and 15 others wounded when four blasts rocked four Shiite neighborhoods in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Tuesday, police with the Interior Ministry said.
The areas struck were Kadhimiya in the northwest, Amil in the southwest, and Ur and Zuhour in the northeast. Car bombs or roadside bombs caused the explosions, police said.
Four other blasts were reported later in the capital but there was no immediate word on specific locations and whether they caused any casualties.
