BAGHDAD, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- A total of five bombings rocked Iraq's northern city of Kirkuk on Friday morning, killing at least five people and wounding dozens more, most of whom were Shiite worshippers and security members, a local police source said.
The apparently-coordinated attacks seemed to target mosques as four of them happened near four different mosques, three Shiite and one Sunni, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
The fifth attack was a car bombing targeting a police patrol.
"Our report says at least five people were killed and 65 others wounded in the five attacks which happened this morning," the source said.
Most of the dead were Shiite worshippers and a number of policemen were among the wounded, he added.
Kirkuk, some 250 km north of Baghdad, is a major oil hub and a multi-ethnic community. It is part of the disputed areas between Kurds, Arabs and Turkomans. The area has long been a hotbed of insurgency since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.
