Car Bombs Kill 20 Across Iraq

A member of the Iraqi security forces inspects the site of a car bomb attack in Kirkuk, 250 km (155 miles) north of Baghdad, April 15, 2013.
Bombings and other attacks across Iraq have killed at least 20 people and wounded nearly 200 others.

The violence Monday hit the capital, Baghdad, as well as Kirkuk and Tuz Khurmato to the north, the central city of Samarra, and Nasiriyah in southern Iraq.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks, which come as Iraqis prepare to vote in provincial elections on Saturday. The vote is the first in Iraq since U.S. troops withdrew from the country in December 2011.

The election has already been postponed by several months in Anbar and Ninevah provinces because of security threats.
