(Reuters) – Ten car bombs exploded across Baghdad province early on Sunday, killing at least 37 people, police and medics said.

Nine of the blasts hit predominantly Shi’ite Muslim districts, with the deadliest attack in the town of Nahrawan, south of the capital, where twocar bombs exploded in quick succession near a busy market, killing seven people.

Shi’ites have been targeted by Sunni Muslim insurgents including al Qaeda who have been regaining momentum this year after being forced underground in 2007.
