BAGHDAD (AP) - Multiple bombs have exploded near three Shiite mosques in Baghdad as worshippers were leaving Friday prayers.
Officials say at least 24 people have been killed, and dozens more wounded.
The bombings shattered a period of relative calm in the Iraqi capital, raising to at least 303 Iraqis killed in what has been one of the least deadly months in Iraq for both Iraqi civilians and U.S. troops since the war began. Only seven American troops have been killed.
Today's deadliest attack came when a car bomb exploded near a Shiite mosque in the northern Baghdad neighborhood of Shaab.
