A destroyed car lies at the scene of an explosion at the bird market in the north Baghdad Shiite neighbourhood of Kadhimiyah on February 8, 2013. A spate of car bombs in Shiite areas of Iraq, including two blasts minutes apart at a popular bird market, killed at least 29 people, the latest in a spike in violence amid a political crisis. The attacks, which left nearly 70 others wounded, primarily targeted marketplaces that are often crowded on Fridays, the weekly holiday in Iraq, and took the death toll from a week of violence to more than 100.
