Fatal Baghdad bombings kill dozens

A wave of co-ordinated car bomb attacks has killed more than 50 people and injured at least 200 in mostly Shia areas of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

The Iraqi Army says it has foiled a number of other planned attacks, arresting more than 20 people.

The bombings are believed to have been planned to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the start of the US-led invasion of Iraq.

Ben Brown reports from Baghdad.
