Car Bomb Kills 11 in Iraqi Capital

BAGHDAD – Eleven people were killed and 18 others injured Friday when a car packed with explosives was detonated in Baghdad’s Al Mashdal neighborhood, an Iraqi police source told Efe.

The explosion took place next to an ice cream parlor in a busy shopping area.

Customers were lined up outside the parlor when the explosives were detonated, the source said.

The attack in the capital came shortly after three bombs went off simultaneously at a park in Al Dur, a village in the northern province of Salaheddin, leaving five people dead and 20 wounded.

Most of the casualties were women and children.

Thirty-seven people died and 145 others were hurt Thursday in a string of assaults across the country.

Nearly 1,000 people died last month in Iraq as a result of political or sectarian violence, bringing the civilian death toll for the year so far to almost 6,000, according to figures from the U.N. mission in Baghdad.

Attacks against security forces and the Shi’ite community are frequent.
