Deadly Wave of Iraq Car Bombs Kills Dozens

More than a dozen coordinated car bombs were detonated in mainly Shia neighborhoods near Iraq’s capital, Baghdad, on Monday morning. Reports of the estimated death toll have varied, with Reuters reporting at least 60 deaths and Al-Jazeera reporting 33. The clashing between the country’s Kurds, Shia and Sunni Muslim groups have led to more than 810 deaths in July, reported Al-Jazeera.
