Dozens killed in Iraq bomb attacks

By BBC | January 15th 2014

IRAQ: At least 26 people have been killed in a series of bomb attacks in central Iraq, police and medical officials say.

Fifteen died when a suicide bomber target a funeral for a pro-government Sunni militiaman in a village south of Baquba, the capital of Diyala province.

Car bombs meanwhile exploded in four parts of Baghdad, killing at least 11 people and wounding dozens more.

There has been a surge in sectarian violence across Iraq in the past year, reaching levels not seen since 2007.

The United Nations says 7,818 civilians and 1,050 members of the security forces died in 2013. December alone saw at least 759 killed.
