Iraq car bombs target Shia Muslims Empty Iraq car bombs target Shia Muslims

At least 26 people have died in a series of car bomb explosions targeting Shia Muslims in markets in Iraq, police and hospital sources say.

In the Shia district of Kadhimiya in Baghdad, 13 people were killed when a car bomb blew up inside a bird market on Friday, followed by a second blast just 100 metres away, around one minute later.

A further 13 people were killed in two car bomb explosions at a vegetable market in the Shia city of Hilla, 60 miles south of Baghdad.

The attacks were the latest in a spate of violence coinciding with growing tensions between Iraq's Sunni, Shia and ethnic Kurdish factions.

Violence has fallen from the height of intercommunal strife that killed tens of thousands in 2006-2007, but insurgents have continued to carry out at least one high-casualty attack a month since the US withdrawal in December 2011.
