Iraq: 53 Dead In Attack On Shi'ites In Basra -Arbaeen

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - At least 16 near-simultaneous explosions struck cities and towns across Iraq on Tuesday, killing at least 43 people and wounding more than 200, despite a massive security clampdown ahead of next week's Arab League summit.



The second explosion caused the biggest destruction. The body parts, fingers, hands were thrown on the road.



In the northern city of Kirkuk, two car bombs exploded near a police headquarters, killing nine people and wounding 42, police and health sources said. In Baghdad, a car bomb near the provincial council building killed four and wounded 11.



And on Monday evening, bombers struck five times in the northern province of Diyala, killing at least three people and wounding more than 30, police said.
