The blasts occurred Tuesday evening and occurred in eight different neighborhoods, mostly Shiite. In addition to the deaths, more than 285 people were injured.

This latest violence comes just two days after a bloody seige at a Catholic church in Baghdad.

After months of political wrangling, Iraq has no government in place and these attacks further undermine its security.
