BAGHDAD, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- A car bombing left 13 dead and 28 others wounded in a major Shiite district in Iraq's capital of Baghdad on Sunday evening, a police source said.
A car bomb was detonated in Baghdad's northern district of Kadimiya, which is home to a well-known Shiite shrine, and caused the casualties, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.
Several civilian vehicles and nearby buildings also suffered damages in the explosion, the source added. Earlier he put the toll at three killed and 12 wounded.
The incident came one day after a bloody Saturday when a wave of attacks struck across the country and killed dozens of people, making the day the deadliest since early September.
No one so far has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Sunni insurgents are likely to blame as most of the bombings and shootings were targeted at Shiite Muslims and security forces, which has been a common tactic for them to stir up sectarian tensions and undermine the Shiite-led government.
