BAGHDAD - Car bombs hit Shiite neighbourhoods of the Iraqi capital for the second day in a row on Thursday, part of a series of attacks across the country that left 21 people dead and raised concerns over a return to sectarian bloodshed.
Baghdad police said the first blast hit a bus and taxi stop during the morning rush hour in the city's eastern Sadr City neighbourhood. Nine people were killed, including a 7-year old child, and 16 were wounded in that attack, two officers said.
