Iraqi authorities said Sunday a series of at least 10 attacks across the country have killed more than 30 people and left scores of others wounded.

Officials say the deadliest attack took place near Balad, north of Baghdad, when gunmen and a bombing killed 11 soldiers and wounded several others.

Farther north at a police recruitment center near the oil-rich city of Kirkuk, police say a bombing killed at least seven recruits and wounded 17 other people.

Various other deadly attacks were also reported across Iraq, including two bombings in the southern city of Nasiriyah. One of the blasts occurred near the French consulate.

There has been no claim of responsibility for any of the attacks.
