String of bombings kill 12 in Iraq market

Three near-simultaneous bombings -- two car bombs and a suicide attack -- killed at least a dozen people in a fruit and vegetable wholesale market north of Baghdad on Monday, officials said.

The blasts went off in the predominantly Shiite town of Judaida al-Shat, which lies just west of the restive city of Baquba, which remains one of Iraq's most dangerous.

The bombings left another 48 people wounded, a police officer and a medic said.
