At least 23 people were killed in a series of explosions in Iraq on Monday. There were a total of 15 shootings and bombings in 13 towns throughout the country. Blasts near a home in the town of Mussayeb killed seven members of the same family. In the northern city of Hilla, a bomb was exploded near the convoy of the governor of Babil province, missing the governor, but killing one other person.
