(ANS) – Car bombs at two Baghdad churches and outside a hospital treating the victims of those attacks killed at least eight people and wounded dozens overnight as a wave of blasts struck the Iraqi capital, according to news sources monitored by ASSIST News Service (ANS). A car bomb exploded outside St George’s Catholic Church in southern Baghdad just before 6.30pm local time, followed a few minutes later by a second outside St Matthew’s church. Victims from both blasts, some carried by injured friends or relatives in torn and bloodstained clothes, were rushed to Yarmouk hospital. A doctor said at least three people had been killed and 40 injured. A few hours later, a suicide car bomber ploughed into four police cars parked outside the hospital entrance, killing at least five policemen, police said.
