Three parked car bombs exploded in central Baghdad on Saturday near a predominantly Shiite area packed with vendors, killing at least 91 people and wounding dozens, officials said. The bombs were about 100 meters apart and exploded nearly simultaneously at about 4:30 p.m., said police Lt. Ali Muhsin and hospital officials. Most of the victims were in the busy al-Sadriyah shopping district in central Baghdad, Muhsin said. At least 10 other parked vehicles were destroyed in an area where street vendors sell fruit, vegetables and other items such as soap. Muhsin and hospital officials said 91 people were killed and 43 were wounded, raising the death toll from 38 after many of the victims died of their wounds.
