At least four were confirmed killed Friday in a triple bombing that rocked a busy Baghdad market area, Iraqi authorities reported.
Police say the bombs detonated within seconds of each other, just by the entrance of the well-visited market in the Sulaikh district of the city, The Associated Press reported. Another 16 or so were injured in the blasts.
The attack came just a day after another series of bombings that went forth in heavily populated commercial districts left 26 dead.
The United Nations reported that Iraq has seen a surge of violence in the past year and that bloodshed has soared to its highest levels since 2007.
