Iraq: hundreds escape from Abu Ghraib jail
Police said a total of 12 parked car bombs targeted markets and car parks in predominantly Shia districts of Baghdad within an hour of each other. They said the deadliest were in the eastern Shia neighbourhood of Sadr City, where two separate explosions killed nine civilians and wounded 33 others.
Ambulances rushed to the scene where rescuers and police were removing the charred and twisted remains of the car bombs from the bloodstained pavement. The force of the two explosions damaged nearby houses and shops.
Ali Khalil, 36, a taxi driver, said he was passing nearby when the first bomb exploded. “I heard a thunderous explosion that shook my car and broke the rear window,” he said. “I immediately pulled over and didn’t know what to do while seeing people running or lying on the ground.”
