String of severe bomb attacks in Iraq proves deadly

At series of apparently coordinated bomb and armed attacks killed at least 89 people while wounding over 200. These attacks appeared to be aimed against mostly Shi'ite Muslim targets and occurred in Shi'ite areas of Baghdad, the Shi'ite town of Taji to the north, the mixed northern city of Kirkuk and elsewhere.

Security in Iraq is tenuous at best and several countries advise their citizens to avoid all travel to this country.
