Iraqi officials say bombings in the Baghdad area killed at least 23 people today, one day after a massive bombing in northern Iraq claimed at least 130 lives.
In today's violence, authorities say a suicide bomber south of Baghdad killed at least 15 security force recruits and wounded about 20 others.
Earlier, two car bombs killed at least eight civilians in Baghdad and wounded several others.
In a separate development, the U.S. military says an American soldier was killed in combat Saturday in the northern province of Salahaddin.
Meanwhile, residents in the northern village of Armili are mourning their dead after the truck bomb attack Saturday on a busy marketplace that killed at least 130.
Shops and mud-brick homes in the rural village were leveled and rescuers spent hours digging victims from the rubble. At least 250 people were injured in the attack.
