"A series of car bombs near Shiite mosques targeting worshippers attending weekly prayers killed at least 15 people on Friday, the latest in a spike in unrest ahead of Iraq's first polls since 2010.
The blasts, which also wounded left 95 people, struck within an hour of each other in the Baghdad neighbourhoods of Binook, Qahira, Zafraniyah and Jihad, as well as in an area of southern Kirkuk city.
No group immediately claimed the attacks, but Sunni militants linked to Al-Qaeda frequently target Shiite Muslims whom they regard as apostates and supporters of the Shiite-led government."
