Explosions in Baghdad killed 2 people

News Hour:

Explosions rocked northeastern neighborhoods of Baghdad on Friday, killing at least two people and wounding 11, police said.

It was not immediately clear what the target was but a police source said mortar rounds or rockets hit three areas near the vast Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City, reports BSS.

“We have two killed and 11 wounded so far,” a police colonel said.

The blasts came as tens of thousands of Shiite faithful from across Iraq and abroad converged on the Kadhimiyah shrine in Baghdad to commemorate the death of Mohammed al-Jawad, the ninth Shiite imam.
