Posted: Updated:

BAGHDAD (AP) - Officials say bombings in Baghdad and the northern city of Kirkuk killed at least 42 people in Iraq on Saturday as the government investigated a deadly attack on a Sunni mosque the day before that has heightened sectarian tensions amid a fragile political transition.
    
In oil-rich Kirkuk, long disputed by Baghdad and the Kurdish regional government, the deputy police chief says three bombs went off in a crowded commercial district, killing 31 people and wounding dozens.
    
Earlier in Baghdad, according to police officer, a suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into the gate of the intelligence headquarters in Karrada district, killing six civilians and five security personnel. He says 24 other people were wounded.
