      20 Dead in a Series of Bombings in Baghdad

      At least 20 people were killed, Sunday, in a series of bombings in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. Iran's Press TV cited Iraqi security officials as saying dozens more were wounded.

      Half of the fatalities were the result of a twin car bombing near a restaurant and tea house in the Shaab neighborhood with another five dying when a parked car detonated in Sadr City. A bomb killed three and wounded 13 in the Bab Al-Muadham neighborhood and two other bombs each claimed a life. No group has come forward to say it was behind the bombings.
