More than 200 dead in iraq bombings

"The death toll from a series of bombs in Sadr City, a poor Shia area of Baghdad, has reached 202. An estimated 250 people were wounded in Thursday afternoons attacks.

Iraqi police released the new figures on Friday. Doctors had said many of the wounded were seriously injured and unlikely to survive. Thursday was one of the bloodiest days in the country since the US invasion." Source: Al Jazeera English - Middle East
