30 killed, 46 wounded in bombing attacks in eastern Iraq

BAGHDAD, July 1 (Xinhua) -- At least 30 people were killed and 46 others wounded in two bombing attacks in eastern Iraq on Monday, the police said.

A suicide bomber attacked a funeral in Muqdadiyah in eastern Iraq's Diyala province, killing at least 23 people and wounding 28 others, a local police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Another suicide bomber struck a cafe in Baquba, also in Diyala province, leaving seven people dead and 18 others wounded, the source said.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the al-Qaida front in Iraq, in most cases, was responsible for such violent acts in the country, raising fears that the terrorist group could return to widespread violence.

High-profile bomb attacks are still common in Iraq despite the dramatic decrease in violence since its peak in 2006 and 2007, when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings.
