BAGHDAD - Iraqi officials say at least 30 people have been killed in a wave of evening car bombings in commercial areas of Baghdad.
Police said the blasts struck late Saturday in the neighborhoods of Karrada, Baiyaa, Shurta, Tobchi and Zafaraniyah.
Police say the explosions were all caused by car bombs parked in commercial streets. Officers say the bombs went off after the breaking of the daily Ramadan fast when many people are out shopping or relaxing in coffee shops.
Hospital officials confirmed the death toll. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to media.
The attacks are the latest in a wave of violence that has killed more than 200 people since the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan
