Deadly attacks on central Baghdad. This was a Turkish airlines office in Saadoun Street in the centre of the Iraqi capital. It's been reduced to rubble. At least 20 people were killed and dozens were wounded in two separate car bombs. The other attack was in Kadhamiya -- a mainly Shi'ite neighbourhood.
