A series of bomb blasts went off in rapid succession in a shopping district in a main Christian neighborhood of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing nine people and wounding 71, police said. Other attacks around Iraq killed four others, and the US military announced the death of a soldier in the north, the latest in what has been one of the bloodiest stretched of days for American troops this year. A car bomb and two roadside bombs blew up in the span of 10 minutes just before noon in a shopping district of the Camp Sara neighborhood, which is predominantly Christian, 1st Lt. Ali Abbas said. The blasts left nine dead and injured 71, including shoppers and 15 policemen, destroyed cars and collapsed part of a nearby building, he said.
