Bloody day in Baghdad. From Al Jazeera:

At least 30 people have been killed and 224 others wounded in a series of three car bombings across the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.

Security officials said that the attacks on Sunday targeted foreign diplomatic missions, with blasts occurring near the embassies of Iran, Germany and Egypt.

Major General Qassim al-Moussawi, an Iraqi security forces spokesman, said that two of the bombings occurred in Baghdad’s Mansour district, in the west of the capital, while the third blast occurred in Salhiya district, near the Iranian embassy.

At the Egyptian embassy, the bomber rammed his car into a concrete blast wall, causing a three-metre deep crater in the street.
