BAGHDAD (AP) - At least 36 people have been killed across Iraq today in another day of violence -- including 26 who died when a suicide bomber attacked a park in northern Baghdad that was filled with people going to cafes and restaurants.
There's been an increasing number of attacks on so-called soft-targets in Iraq, like civilians at coffee shops or those shopping along busy commercial streets.
Today's violence also included two bomb explosions near Sunni mosques in two neighborhoods in Baghdad as worshippers were leaving after the Friday sermon. The bombs killed three people and wounded 18.
