BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Car bombs and attacks on cities across Iraq, including
two blasts at a checkpoint at Baghdad international airport, killed at least 20
people and wounded more than 200 on Monday, police said.

The wave of attacks in Baghdad, Kirkuk, Tuz Khurmato and other towns to the
north to south, came days before Iraqis vote in provincial elections that will
test political stability more than a year after U.S. troops left the
country.

No one claimed responsibility for Monday's bombings, but al Qaeda's local
wing, Islamic State of Iraq, and other Sunni Islamist groups have vowed to wage
a campaign against Shi'ites and the government to stoke sectarian
confrontation.

Two people were killed by car bombs that exploded at a Baghdad airport
checkpoint, police sources said.

Attacks on the heavily guarded airport and the fortified International Zone
housing many embassies are rare, but insurgents have stepped up bombings this
year.

"Two vehicles managed to reach the entrance of Baghdad airport and were left
parked there. While we were doing routine searches, the two cars exploded
seconds apart. Two passengers travelling to the airport were killed," a police
source said.

The most deadly attack was in Tuz Khurmato, 170 km (105 miles) north of
Baghdad, where four bombs targeting police patrols killed five people and
wounded 67, officials said.

Iraqis vote on Saturday for members of provincial councils in a ballot that
will test Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's political muscle against
Shi'ite and Sunni rivals before a parliamentary election in 2014.

Ten years after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, al Qaeda is regaining ground,
especially in the western desert close to Syria's border. Islamic State of Iraq
says it has joined forces with the al-Nusra Front rebels fighting in Syria.

Sunni insurgents, especially al Qaeda, see Baghdad's Shi'ite-led government
as oppressors of the country's Sunni minority and see Shi'ites in general as
apostates from true Islam.
