Three car bombs explode in Baghdad, killing 36, injuring over 10

41680.jpegA series of three car bombs rocked the Iraqi capital Baghdad and the nearby city of Fallujah, claiming the lives of 36 people, according to media reports on Sunday. More than 110 people were also injured in the blasts, which were powerful enough to take large chunks off nearby buildings, the Associated Press reported.

The blasts were the worst attacks the country has seen since thousands of U.S. troops pulled out on Sept. 1. As the troops have pulled out, however, insurgents have started on the offensive, seeking to exploit new holes in the country's security, The Epoch Times says.

Witnesses said the booby-trapped vehicle in Mansour targeted a busy market area near an office of the Asiacell phone company and a popular restaurant. Ten people died.

The car bomb in Kathumya, which killed 19, detonated near an office of Iraq's National Security Ministry, according to Washington Post.
