Blasts in central Baghdad kill at least 12

At least 12 people were killed when three bombs went off in mainly Shi’ite neighborhoods in central Baghdad on Thursday, security and medical sources said. Two suicide bomb attacks in the central commercial district of Bab al-Shargi killed at least eight people and wounded 18 others. A third blast in the nearby Bab al-Muadham district killed four people and wounded nine, the sources said. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they took place in Shi’ite areas often targeted by Sunni insurgents from the Islamic State group.
