The two bombs in the same neighborhood injured more than 50 others in the Iraqi capital
Separate bombs in a northern neighborhood of Baghdad killed 19 people Thursday amid an upswing in violence across the country over the past year.
A car bomb that exploded in a commercial street in the neighborhood of Azamiyah killed 12 people and wounded 28, the Associated Press reports. Minutes later, a bomb exploded in a nearby market, killing seven and wounding 27.
A surge in attacks last year led to the highest death toll since 2007, when sectarian violence began to subside.
