At least 13 killed in car bomb blast in Iraq

Baghdad: At least 13 people were killed and wounded as many as 30, when a string of car bomb went off near a police checkpoint, in Iraq’s capital on Sunday, local authorities said.

The deadliest attack was a series of car bombings in Taji, just north of the capital, Baghdad.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the deadly explosions.

Violence in Iraq has eased since its height in 2006-2007 when sectarian fighting killed thousands of people, but Sunni Islamists and an al Qaeda affiliate still launch regular attacks, seeking to undermine the Shi’ite-led government.
