At least 32 killed, over 40 injured in Iraq attacks

At least 32 people have been killed and dozens wounded in a fresh wave of deadly attacks in Iraq, medics say.

In the capital, Baghdad, at least 16 people were killed in a number of blasts, on Tuesday.

In the western city of Fallujah, another eight people were killed after three bombs went off at a police station.

Moreover, gunmen opened fire on a police vehicle, killing six officers near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

Two others, including a soldier in Mosul and a provincial official in Baghdad, were also killed in earlier attacks.

Reports say the attacks included at least five car bomb explosions in the country.

On September 15, some 60 people lost their lives and scores more were injured in a series of car bombings and other attacks across the country.

Reports say more than 4,200 people have been killed in Iraq so far this year.

According to the United Nations, 1,057 Iraqis, including 928 civilians, were killed and 2,326 were wounded in terrorist attacks throughout the country in July — the deadliest month since 2008.

The UN also said more than 800 people were killed across Iraq in various acts of terrorism in the month of August.

The Iraqi government says al-Qaeda-linked groups and members of the outlawed Ba’ath party are behind the surge in terrorist attacks in the country.
