2 bombs kill 19 in Baghdad

Bishkek (AKIpress) - 2 bombings killed 19 people in a northern neighborhood of Baghdad on Thursday.

A car bomb that exploded in a commercial street in the neighborhood of Azamiyah killed 12 people and wounded 28, the Associated Press reports.

Minutes later, a bomb exploded in a nearby market, killing seven and wounding 27.

A surge in attacks last year led to the highest death toll since 2007, when sectarian violence began to subside.
