Dozens Killed, Wounded in Northern Iraq Bombings

iStock/Thinkstock(ERBIL, Iraq) -- Several bombings in northern Iraq left dozens wounded and close to 20 people dead Saturday.

The first attack in the Kurdish city of Erbil wounded four after a magnetic bomb detonated.

Three more deadly car bombings followed in Kirkuk, a city controlled by Kurdish forces.

Officials believe the attacks were coordinated by militant group ISIS, which controls much of the territory south of Iraqi Kurdistan.
