A series of bombings in central Iraq killed 28 people on Monday, as a government official claimed that Al-Qaeda-linked fighters have dug in to a city they seized last month and possess enough heavy weapons to storm into the country's capital.The bombings, mainly in Baghdad targeting marketplaces and court buildings, came as the army presses an all-out offensive announced Sunday to retake the area, but has come up against heavy resistance.The deadliest of Monday's blasts hit an outdoor market south of the capital, killing seven people and wounding 13, police said.Later, a car bomb went off in a commercial street in western Baghdad, killing three people and wounding nine others.
