BAGHDAD — Iraqi officials say two more attacks have struck busy areas in Baghdad, raising the death toll from a day of violence to 32.
The officials say a triple car bombing tore through an outdoor market in a southeastern suburb, killing at least nine people. That was followed minutes later by a rocket that killed a bystander near a gate of the Green Zone, the site of many government buildings and foreign embassies.
The deadliest of Wednesday’s other bombings took place across the street from the Foreign Ministry building, when two parked cars exploded simultaneously in different parking lots, killing 12 people.
Nobody has claimed responsibility, but the attacks bear the hallmarks of al-Qaida-led Sunni insurgents who are battling the Shiite-led government.
