3 explosions rock central Baghdad

Blasts’ cause, whether there are casualties not known

BAGHDAD – Three loud explosions hit central Baghdad in quick succession Sunday, breaking a period of relative calm in the Iraqi capital after elections last month.

The force of the blasts shook buildings and rattled windows in the center of the capital. At least two plumes of gray smoke rose above Baghdad, one near the center of the city and another in the western part of the capital.

One of the blasts struck near the Iranian Embassy, Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Mousawi, a spokesman for the city’s operations command center, told The Associated Press.

  1. Moktada?  I doubt that.  Srsly.  Does anyone remain who needs convincing that the US occupation isn’t working?

    Show of hands?
