Dozens dead after bombings in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) - Bombings have killed at least 41 people in Iraq
and left nearly 100 more injured.
A suicide bomber struck near a judge's house in northern Iraq
killing 34 people and injuring 70 others. Officials say the attack
in Tal Afar happened around 6:30 this morning.
About an hour later in Baghdad, officials say two bombs just a
few hundred feet apart exploded within a minute of one another
killing six people and injuring more than two dozen.
One man who was hurt in the bombings in the Shiite neighborhood
of Sadr City says he heard the first blast and went to see what had
happened. That's when the second bomb hidden in trash detonated. He
was taken to a hospital with hand and leg injuries.
Also in central Baghdad, a roadside bomb targeting the convoy of
Iraq's Central Bank governor exploded, killing a civilian and
wounding five. The official wasn't hurt.
