More than thirty five people have been killed and others wounded in a series of bomb attacks on Christians in Iraq on Christmas Day.
A car bomb, detonated outside St John’s Catholic church in the Dora area of Baghdad, killed at least 26 people and wounded 38 others as they left a Christmas day service, officials said on Wednesday.
Earlier two bombs at a market in the al-Athorien district, a majority Christian area, killed at least 11 people and injured 21 more.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks but Christians have been victims of escalating violence in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
