Filed on December 1, 2013

Authorities in Iraq say a triple bombing has killed nine people in a town northeast of Baghdad.

Police officials say bombs went off on Sunday morning at a gathering 80 kilometres (50 miles) from the capital.

Police said that 45 other people were wounded in the attack.

A hospital official confirmed the casualty figures.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media.

Violence has spiked in the last seven months amid escalated political and sectarian tensions in the country.
