A wave of car bombings across central and southern Iraq has killed at least 30 people.

 

Most of the attacks took place in cities with a high concentration of Shia Muslims - including Kut, Najaf, Mahmoudiya, Nasiriya and Basra.

 

Iraq has been hit by almost daily attacks, raising fears of a return to the worst levels of sectarian violence.

 

Last month was the bloodiest in Iraq since June 2008, with 1,045 civilians and security officials killed.
