(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) At least 49 people have been killed in a wave of car bombs in the Iraqi cities of Baghdad and Hilla, officials say.

The blasts come a day after at least 23 people were killed in bomb explosions in the Iraqi capital, reported the BBC on Wednesday

Last month, more than 1,000 people were killed in attacks

Medical sources in Hilla said the main hospital has so far received 35 bodies from seven car bombings

In the capital Baghdad, bombs killed at least 14 people

In one attack, a bomb inside a parked vehicle exploded near a bus station in the capital's Bayaa district, killing five people

Police said all Tuesday's attacks were caused by cars parked in or near commercial areas and bus stations

More people were killed in Iraq in 2013 than at any point since 2008, when sectarian violence reached its peak
