BAGHDAD, Iraq - Three back-to-back explosions killed 20 people and wounded more than 70 Sunday night in a mostly Shiite neighborhood in southern Baghdad, police said.
The first blast occurred about 7:15 p.m. when a rocket struck an apartment building in the Zafraniyah neighborhood, police Lt. Thaer Mahmoud said.
About 10 minutes later, a car bomb exploded as police and bystanders rushed to the scene, he said. A bomb strapped to a motorcycle went off in the same area minutes later, he said.
First reports said eight people were killed in the rocket attack and 12 in the two other blasts, he said, adding that more than 70 were wounded.
