KIRKUK: A spate of apparently coordinated attacks across Iraq on the eve of a festival marking the Islamic New Year killed 19 people and wounded more than 150 others on Wednesday, officials said.

The 13 bombings and shootings struck in Baghdad and nine other cities, the security and medical officials said, and will likely raise tensions in a country mired in political deadlock and which suffered a brutal sectarian war.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the violence, but Al-Qaeda’s front group in Iraq frequently carries out coordinated bombings and attempts mass-casualty attacks in a bid to destabilise the government through bloodshed. Wednesday’s deadliest blasts struck in Kirkuk.

End.
