Car bombs and a shooting, mainly in Shiite areas, killed 20 people in the Iraqi capital on Wednesday, officials said, as authorities released a rare photograph of a man they say is the leader of al-Qaida's local branch.Police officials said the deadliest attack took place when two car bombs went off almost simultaneously in separate commercial streets in the Shiite neighborhood of Shula in northern Baghdad, killing nine and wounding 19 . A car bomb blast near a small restaurant in a Shiite neighborhood in eastern Baghdad also killed four people and wounded 13 others, said police. The group is behind most of the attacks that have been taking place in Iraq.
