At least 72 people were killed and more than 140 injured in Baghdad when three bombs went off Tuesday, according to police and medical sources.
The explosions hit Shia-dominated neighbourhoods in the north and south of the Iraqi capital as well as the Sadr City district.
The three blasts, which appeared not to be connected, struck different areas of Baghdad, and extend a deadly spate of attacks that the Iraqi capital has had to endure this year. The worst explosion hit a district in the north of Baghdad, killing 38 people and injuring at least 70 others.
