Bombings, mortar strikes kill 76 across Baghdad

• AP
Rapid-fire bombings and mortar strikes killed 76 people and wounded more than 200 across Baghdad’s myriad neighborhoods Tuesday, demonstrating the insurgents’ ability to carry out coordinated strikes from one side of the capital to the other.
The attack—blasts in at least 13 separate neighborhoods—was clearly designed to hit civilians at restaurants and cafes where many Iraqis were gathered to enjoy the warm evening. The sophistication and the targets—Shiites—suggested that al-Qaida-linked Sunni militants were responsible for the deadliest day in Iraq since May.
