Bombs hit mosques in Iraq; 11 die

BAGHDAD — A pair of bombs struck in quick succession outside a Sunni mosque north of Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 11 people and wounding more than 30.

The attacks in the town of Kanaan, about 47 miles northeast of the capital, are likely to increase fears of further violence ahead of provincial elections in much of the country scheduled for next week.
