More than 90 people killed in attacks across Iraq

More than 90 people have been killed in a wave of deadly attacks across Iraq, the most recent in Baghdad this morning where a car bombing has killed 15.

The string of attacks follow an Iraqi court sentencing the fugitive Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi to death by hanging, after finding him guilty of murder.

Another 350 people have been injured, and while no one has claimed responsibility the attacks are believed to be the work of Sunni insurgents.
