At least 12 killed in Iraq attack series

PanARMENIAN.Net - At least 12 people have been killed in a series of attacks across Iraq, BBC News said.

Seven died in Baghdad's north-eastern district of Husseiniya when two bombs exploded simultaneously at an open-air market just minutes before sunset.

In the city of Kirkuk, militants were reported to have attacked the home of a Turkoman family, cutting the throats of a father, mother and two daughters.

On Wednesday, the government put the death toll from attacks in July at 325, the highest since August 2010.

Violence has nevertheless decreased from its peak in 2006 and 2007.

The Islamic State of Iraq, a radical Sunni Islamist militant umbrella group that includes al-Qaeda in Iraq, has said it will look to seize control of territory in an offensive during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
