Two bombs that exploded in swift succession killed 14 people Wednesday near a crowded restaurant in a midsized city in Iraq's north, officials said.
Car bombs ripped through two Iraqi cities on Monday, killing at least 11 people, Iraq officials said, in the latest attacks targeting the country's Shiites a month after the U.S. military withdrawal.
Mr. al-Obedi and local politician Qusai Abbas said 14 people were killed in the mixed Arab-Turkomen city about 90 miles east of the Syrian border and 260 miles northwest of Baghdad.
