BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — A series of bombs exploded in rapid succession in a shopping district in a mainly Christian neighborhood of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing 16 people and wounding 87, police said….
Just before noon, a car bomb and two roadside bombs blew up within 10 minutes in a shopping district of the Camp Sara neighborhood, which is predominantly Christian, 1st Lt. Ali Abbas said.
The blasts left 16 dead and wounded 87, including shoppers and 15 policemen, destroying cars and collapsing part of a nearby building, he said.
Bodies lay in the street next to the smoking wreckage of burning cars. Rescue workers piled corpses into an ambulance parked next to the crumbled facade of a building, while a policeman warned residents to leave the area for fear more bombs would explode.
