Multiple car bomb attack across the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Saturday evening have left at least 30 people dead, according to police and medical personnel.

Explosions were reported in at least 5 Shi’ite neighbourhoods of Baghdad. Police say that each attack involved bombs place in cars which were then parked in shopping districts and detonated after the breaking of the daily fast for Ramadan when the streets were at their busiest. Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, but militant groups from the Sunni Muslim minority, opposed to the Shi’ite dominated government of the country, are by far the likeliest candidate.

More than 200 people have been killed in an upsurge of violence since the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
