Series Of Iraqi Blasts Kill At Least 30

BAGHDAD (AP) - Police said a series of morning blasts in the Iraqi capital and four cities in the north have killed at least 23 people.

Officials said extremists launched 10 attacks in Baghdad and four northern cities including Kirkuk and Baqouba. Nearly 100 people were wounded in the rapid-fire explosions that unfolded over an hour and 15 minutes.

There's been no claim of responsibility for the attacks, but a Baghdad military command spokesman said they resemble those carried out by al-Qaida.
