Iraq Bombings Kill 30

A series of attacks targeted Iraq’s Shiite community Saturday, despite increased security for the four-day religious holiday Eid al-Adha. The country was rocked by a string of bombings and shootings, including an explosion on playground equipment on the outskirts of Baghdad that killed eight, including four children. In the northern part of the country, gunmen broke into two houses, killing a boy and his parents in one home, and a mother and daughter in another.
