POSTED:



BAGHDAD >> Iraqi hospital and police officials say blasts ripping through Baghdad's mostly Shiite neighborhoods have killed at least 62 people and wounded another 180.

The blasts occurred in at least 10 neighborhoods across the capital Tuesday evening.

Officials said the blasts involved booby-trapped cars, roadside bombs and mortar strikes.

The blasts come just two days after gunmen in Baghdad held a Christian congregation hostage in a siege that ended with 58 people dead.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
