Ten car bombs ripped through the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killing at least 42 and wounding dozens more, officials said. Further attacks, including a separate blast targeting soldiers in the northern city of Mosul, killed dozens more across Iraq.

 

Nine of the blasts targeted predominantly Shiite Muslim districts over the course of half an hour, police said.

The most violent of those blasts occurred in the town of Nahrawan, south of the capital, where two back-to-back car bombs exploded near a busy market, killing seven people and injured 15 others.

Attacks in the northern Shaab and southern Abu Dshir neighborhoods killed six people each. Other explosions hit the neighborhoods of Mashtal, Baladiyat and Ur in eastern Baghdad and the northern Sab al-Bor and Hurriyah districts.

Meanwhile, Sunday’s deadliest attack targeted soldiers in the northern city of Mosul, killing at least 14 people and wounding 30 others. A man driving a car packed with explosives blew himself up outside a government bank where soldiers were waiting in line to collect their salaries, Reuters cites police as saying. Five of those killed were civilians. 

In a separate incident, also in Mosul, gunmen killed two off-duty soldiers in a drive-by shooting.

Later on Sunday, four people were killed and 11 injured by an explosion at an outdoor market in the Sunni town of Tarmiyah. 

In the evening, a further four people were killed and nine injured by a mortar shell that landed in a Shiite district of Madain.
