At Least Six Killed in Baghdad Explosions

(BAGDHAD, Iraq) -- Three explosions rocked the city of Baghdad on Sunday killing at least six people say officials.

According to BBC News, the explosions were planted in the busy Shurja market where people were shopping for the first day of the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.

While violence has decreased across the country, the latest attacks raise concerns of an escalation in violence against civilians when the remaining U.S. military forces leave the country in December.
