Blasts kill 50 in Baghdad

[Updated at 2:14 p.m. ET] Continuing coverage on the wave of blasts in Baghdad. FULL STORY

 [Updated at 1:13 p.m. ET] At least 50 people have died and 75 have been wounded in the wave of explosions across Baghdad on Tuesday, police said.

[Updated at 12:52 p.m. ET] At least 23 people were killed and 36 wounded in a wave of blasts in Iraq's capital Tuesday, police said.

[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.

During the height of the Iraqi war, Baghdad was beset with daily sectarian violence in Sunni and Shiite neighborhoods.

    I thought all neighborhoods in Baghdad were shi­t neighborhoods. Hopefully the capital will just get wiped out so we can be one more desert-town short in the world.

    Another example of the fantasy of Nation building. The US can't even rebuild itself with all the borrowed money being spent on such foolishness. No matter how it comes out, in the end, they will hate us anyway.
