BAGHDAD, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- The death toll caused by two car bombings in Baghdad's Sadr city on Saturday night rose to 10 and the injured number to 32, a police source said.
The blasts took place in quick succession in the capital's major Shiite neighborhood late night, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
He earlier put the toll at four dead and 15 injured.
The death toll could further rise as some injured were in serious conditions, he added.
Several were killed and dozens more wounded in other separate bombings and shootings in the evening in and near Baghdad.
The string of attacks cast a pall over the major Muslim holiday, the Eid al-Adha.
Early in the day time, multiple attacks claimed a score of lives across the violence-laden country. Religious festivals and annual holidays are usually marked by a spike of violence in Iraq.
