World Bulletin / News Desk

At least seven people were killed and dozens injured Wednesday in a spate of bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital Baghdad

A device exploded in Abu Ghreib, west of Baghdad, killing two people and injuring seven others, Iraqi police officer Nasser al-Hanoun said. 

He said another two people were killed and six others in a bomb explosion in northern Baghdad.

Three more people were injured and 11 others injured in four bomb blasts in different parts of the Iraqi capital. 

There was no claim of responsibility for Wednesday’s attacks. 

Iraq has suffered a devastating security vacuum since mid-2014, when ISIL extremist group captured the northern city of Mosul and overran large swathes of territory in the northern and western parts of the country. 

Since then, some 58,000 people countrywide have been killed in sporadic acts of violence, according to UN figures.
