27 slain in Baghdad bombings

At least 27 people were killed and more than 50 others were wounded Tuesday when nine car bombs exploded in largely Shiite areas in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, police said.

The attacks unfolded within an hour shortly before sunset, police said. The explosions took place in Karrada, al-Alam, Talbiya, Abu Dsheer, Al-Maamil, Zafaraniya, al-Shurta Rabaa and Skaniya, police said.

The deadliest attack was in al-Shurta Rabaa, in southwestern Baghdad when a car bomb in a busy shopping area killed six people and wounded 12 others.
