By Paul Iddon     Jun 10, 2013 in World
Deadly car bombings have hit two separate markets in central Iraq leaving at least twenty-two civilians dead in their wake.
Al Jazeera and The Times of India report the blasts were nearly simultaneous and struck markets in Baghdad and Diyala province.
The most serious blast occurred when three car bombs exploded in the town of Jadidat al-Shatt in the Diyala province killing around 13 and wounding a further 50. Eight more will killed when the town of Taji north of the capital Baghdad was struck by a similar bombing attack.
Officials also stated that several car bombs were detonated in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul. One suicide bomber drove his car straight into a police post before detonating another one driving up to a security checkpoint whereby he detonated the car bomb killing himself and inflicting more casualties.
The United Nations reports that 1,045 Iraqis have been killed by such terrorist forces in the month of May this year, an increase from the 712 killed in April.
