Another double car bomb as rocked the city of Baghdad in Iraq killing over 50 people and wounding at least 100.
The attack took place near a Shiite neighborhood of Sadr City in northeastern Baghdada. One bomb went off near a tent where mourners were gathered as reported by BBC. A third bomb nearby added to the death toll by killing three more and wounding 18.
Sectarian violence has reached its highest point since 2008 which is thought to be partially due to the violence of the Syrian conflict spilling over to nearby regions.
