Iraq: Attacks kill 13 north of Baghdad

Three bomb blasts shortly before sunset Wednesday killed 10 people north of Baghdad in the latest spasm of violence to grip Iraq.

 

The blasts underscored the volatility of the country eight months after the last US troops pulled out. Insurgents, led by the local branch of al-Qaeda, are trying to re-establish themselves in their old strongholds and undermine the government. (AP)
