Iraq violence: Deadly explosions strike Baghdad

A wave of apparently co-ordinated bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has killed at least 63 people and injured around 185, say officials.

The interior ministry told the BBC 14 blasts hit various locations, including al-Amil in the south and Halawi and Karrada closer to the centre.

Abdallah, who lives near one of the blast sites, and Zeinab, a lecturer in English literature, were both witnesses and described what they saw to the BBC's World Have Your Say.
