BAGHDAD: Bombs exploded at four Sunni mosques in and around Baghdad on Friday, killing four people and wounding 50, an interior ministry official and medics said.

The bombers struck after the main weekly prayers as four days of violence that have killed more than 190 people raised fears of a return to all-out sectarian conflict.

A bomb exploded inside Al-Kubaisi mosque in south Baghdad, killing four people and wounding 36, while bombs near Al-Shaheed Yusif and Malik al-Ashtar mosques in the north of the capital wounded at least 11, the official and medics said.

A fourth bomb went off near Al-Razzaq mosque, north of Baghdad, wounding at least three people.
