BAGHDAD: At least 40 people were killed and 95 wounded in three apparently coordinated car bombs at two markets in Baghdad's Shi'ite district of Sadr City on Sunday, police said.

It was one of the worst days of violence in the Capital in recent months.

Two car bombs exploded in one market while a third blew up almost simultaneously at another.

Police said they had discovered a fourth car bomb at another market and defused it. Reuters
