(BAGHDAD) — A wave of bomb attacks across Iraq’s capital and the southern city of Nasiriya have left at least 68 people dead and more than 100 wounded.
An Iraqi military spokesman said it was too early to say who may have been behind the series of bombings, BBC News reported.
Critics of President Obama’s withdrawal strategy have feared an uptick in violence following the United States military’s departure from Iraq.
