BAGHDAD (AP) — The latest series of coordinated attacks in Iraq has left at least 47 people dead.
Many were caught up in a string of car bombings that tore through the Iraqi capital early in the evening as residents were out shopping or heading to dinner. Those explosions in several different neighborhoods claimed at least 33 lives.
The deadliest single blast hit a row of restaurants in eastern Baghdad, killing seven people and wounding 28 others.
