60 people killed across Iraq so far today

At least 10 car bombs ripped through Baghdad killing dozens of people and wounding many more, amid the worst violence in Iraq since 2008.

In the deadliest attack today, a suicide bomber targeted soldiers in the northern city of Mosul, killing at least 12 and wounding dozens more, Reuters reported police as saying.

The soldiers were waiting outside a bank to collect their salaries, when the bomber driving a car packed with high explosives blew himself up, said the report.

Iraqi soldiers and security personnel are prime targets for [Saudi-backed] Sunni militants seeking to destabilize the country’s Shi’ite-led government, the report said.
