Bomb explosions kill 6 civilians in Baghdad


Six people were killed and 11 injured in three explosions on Tuesday in Iraq’s capital, security officials said on Tuesday.

One of two motorcycles loaded with bombs was detonated near a mosque in southwest Baghdad and the other in the eastern part of the city, officials say.

The last attack involved a roadside bomb in the northeastern Shaab neighborhood.

Since early October, Iraq has seen mass popular protests against poor living conditions and corruption. The demands spiraled into calls for dissolving Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi’s government.

According to Iraq’s High Commission for Human Rights, at least 336 Iraqis have been killed and around 15,000 injured since the protests began.
