A series of bomb blasts went off in rapid succession in a shopping district in a mainly Christian neighborhood of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing 16 people and wounding 87, police said. The dead were among 26 people killed in attacks across Iraq. The US military announced the death of two soldiers - the latest in what has been one of the bloodiest stretches of days for American troops this year.
