BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi officials say a series of attacks in several cities across the country have killed 22 people.
Most of the deadly attacks on Monday morning reported by police officials were bombings, which killed 21 people in Baghdad, in the western city of Fallujah, the contested northern city of Kirkuk and towns south of the capital. Another 100 people were wounded.
Hospital officials confirmed the casualty tolls. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release details to reporters.
The attacks come less than a week before Iraqis in much of the country are scheduled to vote in the country's first elections since the 2011 U.S. troop withdrawal. The vote will be a key test of security forces' ability to keep voters safe.
