At Least Nine Killed, Dozens Wounded After Multiple Car Bombs in Baghdad

Antenna Audio, Inc./Getty Images(BAGHDAD) -- A series of car bombs across Shiite areas of Baghdad on Tuesday left at least nine people dead and dozens more injured, according to police.

Police say the first incident took place in Sadr City, when two parked car bombs went off, killing six people and wounding 32 others.

The other two attacks occurred in Al-Hurriya and Shula, resulting in the deaths of one person and two people, respectively.

Tuesday's bombings highlight the surge in violence that has taken place in Iraq following the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country late last year. Since Presidet Obama ordered the rapid pullout, close to 200 people have died in attacks there.
