BAGHDAD — Iraqi police and hospital officials say two additional bombings in Baghdad have left more than 25 dead and 56 wounded Wednesday, bringing the day’s total death toll to 88.

In Northern Baghdad a suicide car bomb in the neighborhood of Jamiya killed seven and wounded 22. Earlier Wednesday a car bombing of an outdoor market in Sadr City killed at least 63 people.
