(Newser) – At least 28 people are dead and another 68 injured after two bombs exploded in quick succession in Baghdad this morning in the same spot, CNN reports. The first bomb detonated in a parked car just outside a marketplace, and a suicide bomber set off the second blast amid the crowd of onlookers who gathered to watch the scene. Al-Qaeda is suspected to be behind the attack, the deadliest in the city in four months.
