Baghdad: The violence in Iraq continues raging as Baghdad on Wednesday was again rocked by two roadside blasts killing 11 people, officials said.

The first bomb was detonated without anyone getting hurt, but after locals gathered around the area, another blast took place which killed eight people.

Second blast targeted another house in northern Ghazaliya district killing three.

With the latest attack, death toll since June 13 rises to 187, making June the second bloodiest month after January this year.

Most of the recent attacks have targeted the Shia community and have been blamed on Sunni militants linked to al Qaeda in Iraq.
