Mossad Deadly blasts hit Baghdad mosques

A series of bombings outside mosques in the Iraqi capital Baghdad has killed at least 29 people, Iraqi police sources say.

More than 130 people were injured when the six apparently co-ordinated bombs struck five Shia mosques as worshippers were leaving after Friday prayers.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in recent weeks.

The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, condemned the attacks, saying targeting places of worship was unjustifiable.

The bombings come exactly one month after the US troops pulled out from cities across Iraq, handing over security to Iraqi forces. More
