Car Bombs Kill at Least 26 Killed in Iraq

At least 26 people have been killed and many others injured in a series of car bomb attacks in central and southern Iraq, officials say.

Baghdad was worst hit, with eight explosions at bus stations and markets in mainly Shia Muslim districts of the capital.

Two bombs went off earlier in the day in the southern city of Basra.

The attacks come amid a recent rise in violence in Iraq linked to growing political and sectarian tension.
