BAGHDAD — Iraqi officials say a wave of car bomb and suicide bomb blasts has rocked Baghdad and a northern town, raising the day's death toll to at least 46 killed.

They say car bomb and suicide bomb blasts struck Thursday in Baghdad and the northern town of Tuz Khormato as Iraqis are celebrating this week's Eid al-Adha holiday, killing 31.

The late afternoon and evening attacks follow a bombing earlier in the day in a northern village that left 15 dead.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualties. Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information.
