Baghdad market bombs kill 14, wound more than 100
Authorities in Iraq say 14 people are dead and more than 100 wounded in a double bombing at a busy market in a Shiite neighborhood of northeastern Baghdad.
A police official says the two bombs tore through the market Friday at midmorning while people were shopping before the heat of the day. He says 14 people were killed and 106 were wounded. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.
At least 125 Iraqis have been killed over the last two weeks in bombings and shootings that have mostly targeted Shiite Muslims and government security forces. It has been one of the deadliest periods since the last American troops withdrew six months ago.
