Bomb attacks on markets in predominantly Shi'ite neighborhoods of Baghdad killed at last 16 people, among 38 Iraqis killed or found dead across the country on Thursday in the latest outbreak of sectarian violence. Seven of those were killed when a car bomb detonated outside shops in northern Baghdad's Qahira district as noontime shoppers were gathering, said police Lt. Ali Muhsin. He said 27 others were injured and seven cars destroyed. Around the same time, a suicide bomber plowed his explosives-rigged vehicle into crowds gathered in Mission commercial complex for spare parts in Baghdad's downtown Karradah district, police Col. Abbas Mohammed Salman said. At least nine were killed and 27 wounded in that attack, he said.
