A roadside bomb exploded Wednesday near a primary school in a mostly Shiite area in southern Iraq, killing two boys and injuring four others, police said. The incident happened at about 7:45 a.m. in the Bashrogiya area near Kut, about 160 kilometers southeast of Baghdad, police Lt. Othman al-Rawi said. There have been a series of attacks in heavily Shiite areas in recent days, raising fears of an escalation in sectarian violence. At least 22 people were killed when a car bomb exploded in a street packed with shoppers in a Shiite section of Baghdad's Dora neighborhood on Tuesday, and 12 people died Monday when a suicide bomber detonated an explosives belt on a bus in the capital's Kazimiyah district.
