But of course, this conflict has nothing to do with religion. From the BBC, with thanks to Susan:
The first two blasts happened near churches in the busy Karada shopping area of Baghdad, sending a plume of smoke across the neighbourhood.
At least two people are reported to have been killed in what appears to be a new tactic by insurgents.
A third blast was reported a short time later in Mosul, where a police station had been bombed earlier in the day.
Witnesses said a car bomb detonated outside an Armenian church as an evening service was getting under way.
It blew out stained glass windows, and scattered pieces of hot metal across the street. The wreckage of at least three burned out cars was left in its wake.
“I saw injured women and children and men, the church’s glass shattered everywhere. There’s glass all over the floor,” Juliette Agob, who was inside the church at the time, was quoted by the Associated Press as saying.
Ten minutes later, as the emergency services raced to the scene, a second blast went off outside a Syrian Catholic church some 400 metres from the first church.
An ambulance driver said two people had been killed.
At around the same time, a suspected car bomb went off outside a church in Mosul.
