Dozens dead in Iraq attacks
The attacks on Wednesday mostly targeted police infrastructure and checkpoints 

A series of deadly attacks have rocked Iraq, leaving more than 50 people dead 
and scores more wounded.

The attacks on Wednesday came a day after the number of US troops in the 
country fell below 50,000.

In Baghdad's deadliest attack, a suicide car bomber targeted the Qahira police 
station, located in the north of Iraq's capital, killing 15 people and wounding 
around 58 on Wednesday, Iraqi police sources told Al Jazeera.

The bombing brought down segments of concrete blast wall protecting the police 
station, leaving a crater three metres in diameter.

Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna, reporting from Baghdad, said: "It does appear the 
primary targets [of Wednesday's attacks] are police stations, checkpoints [and 
other] symbols of the attempt to create a system of law and order within Iraq".

On Haifa street, in central Baghdad, 10 people were wounded by an improvised 
explosive device, or IED.
