BAGHDAD | Thu May 31, 2012 8:26am EDT

(Reuters) - Six explosions hit Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 11 people and wounding dozens more, the most deadly attacks on the Iraqi capital in more than a month.

The blasts, including a truck bomb that exploded in a busy market area, broke weeks a relative quiet in Baghdad just as the country's fragile government shared among Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish blocs wrangles to end a political crisis that has threatened to reignite sectarian tensions.

In the largest blast, a bomber detonated a vegetable delivery truck packed with explosives near a restaurant in a market, killing at least nine people and wounding 27 more in the mainly Shi'ite Shula district in northeastern Baghdad.

1. why do we have to hear about how many people are

killed in baghdad? These people have been fighting for centuries. If the news don't
tell us why they are fighting, what's the point of telling us how many died. Obviously
they are fighting for a reason.
