Deadly explosions rock Baghdad

Posted:

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi officials say at least 27 people have been killed and more than 50 wounded in a twin car bombing in a crowded area outside a state-run bank in Baghdad.

Police and hospital officials say the casualty toll has risen as more victims are pulled from the debris after Sunday's devastating blast.

The explosives-packed cars were a few hundred yards (meters) apart when they blew up shortly after 11 a.m. as the area was crowded with people at the start of the work week.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information.
