BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a wave of car bombings and other attacks across Iraq has killed at least 47 people today -- including more than 20 in the capital, Baghdad.
The attacks mainly targeted Shiite areas and are believed to have been carried out by Sunni militants. The extremist Islamic State group has claimed similar previous attacks.
In the deadliest attack, a car bomb in northwestern Baghdad killed eight people and wounded 15.
