Officials: Wave of Bombings in Iraq Kills 33

Saturday, 10 August 2013 12:20 PM EDT

BAGHDAD — Officials say a wave of bombings around the Iraqi capital of Baghdad have killed 33 people celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

Police officials say the deadliest of Saturday's attacks took place when a car bomb exploded near an outdoor market in the southeastern suburbs of Baghdad shortly before sunset, killing seven people and wounding 20.

Police said a series of car bombs against cafes, markets and restaurants in the capital killed another 26 people and wounded dozens.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to talk to journalists.

Iraqi security forces have increased security to protect people during the celebrations marking the end of Ramadan. This year's Ramadan was the most violence since 2007, with 671 people killed.
