A series of near simultaneous bombings in nearly a dozen Iraqi cities has killed explosions in several Iraqi cities has killed at least 29 people and wounded more than 100.

Iraqi police say car and roadside bombs went off early Tuesday in a number of places, including Baghdad, Kirkuk, and the holy Shi'ite city of Karbala.

There are few details so far on the attacks which come on the heels of the ninth anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion that toppled the late dictator Saddam Hussein and just ahead of next week's Arab League summit in Baghdad.
