Iraqi officials: Triple bombing at village market near Baghdad kills 14 people

Iraqi officials say a triple bombing at an outdoor market in a village just north of Baghdad has killed 14 people and wounded 40.

Police officials say three bombs went off on Thursday as the market in the Shiite village of Sabaa al-Bour was packed with shoppers. The village is about 30 kilometers (20 miles) north of Baghdad.

The officials say two bombs exploded at the entrance of the village market while the third one went off inside.

The attack came shortly after a bombing at an outdoor market in southern Baghdad killed seven people, including two women.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to talk to the media.
