Four bombs hit central Baghdad

Yahoo NewsFebruary 5, 2014

Four bombs struck near Baghdad's heavily-fortified "Green Zone" and a busy square in the center of the capital on Wednesday, killing at least 13 people, security sources said.

The blasts came a day after two rockets were fired into the Green Zone, home to the prime minister's office and Western embassies, and are likely to heighten concerns about Iraq's ability to protect strategic sites as security deteriorates. (Reuters)
