IEDs kill 6 civilians in Baghdad as Iraqis protest government

Six people were killed and 11 injured in three explosions in Iraq’s capital, security officials said on Tuesday.

One of two motorcycles loaded with bombs was detonated near a mosque in southwest Baghdad and the other in the eastern part of the city, officials say.

The last attack involved a roadside bomb in the northeastern Shaab neighborhood.

The bombings took place far from Baghdad’s Tahrir Square, the epicenter of weeks of anti-government protests that have posed the biggest security challenge to Iraq since the defeat of Daesh.
