More killed in Iraq as U.S. nears combat troop exit
Source: CNN

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Eight more people died in attacks over the last 24 hours in Baghdad, the latest in a wave of deadly strikes as U.S. combat forces prepare to withdraw from cities and towns.

Those strikes followed a major blast that killed 72 people and injured about 135 others at a Baghdad market on Wednesday and a deadly blast in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Saturday that killed 80 people.

The Interior Ministry said eight attacks hit Baghdad from Wednesday night into Thursday afternoon.

At least five people were killed and 30 wounded on Thursday when a parked car bomb detonated in a bus station in a predominantly Shiite area of southwestern Baghdad, the Interior Ministry said.

A roadside bomb exploded near a bus station and an outdoor market in a neighborhood in southwestern Baghdad on Thursday, killing two people and wounding 28 others.

Late Wednesday, a roadside bomb exploded during an Iraqi police foot patrol in Baladiya square in eastern Baghdad, killing an Iraqi police officer and wounding three others.
