BAGHDAD - Explosions rocked two more towns in Iraq on Tuesday, raising the toll in a string of bomb attacks across the country to 39 dead and 188 wounded, police and hospital sources said.

A car bomb targeting a police patrol in Mahmudiya in the south killed three people and wounded 12, while a car bomb blast near a convoy carrying the governor of Anbar province killed one of his security men and wounded eight other people.

At least 14 other explosions hit various Iraqi cities and towns earlier on Tuesday, extending a spate of militant violence ahead of next week's Arab League summit in Baghdad.
