10 killed, 33 wounded in Baghdad violence: Iraqi officials

AP , Thursday 4 Feb 2016

Iraqi officials say a string of roadside bombs and a shooting have left nine people dead and 33 wounded across the capital.

Thursday's violence comes one day after Iraqi authorities announced that construction had begun on a wall and trench around Baghdad to prevent militants and explosive-laden cars from entering the capital, where bombings and suicide attacks have been commonplace for over a decade.

Most attacks on Baghdad are linked to Sunni militants and tend to target members of the Shiite-dominated security forces and civilians.

The security and hospital officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
