A series of car bomb blasts in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, has killed at least 47 people and injured many more, officials say.

The blasts targeted markets and car parks in mainly Shia Muslim districts of the city.

There has been a recent upsurge in sectarian violence, sparking fears of a return to the bloodletting of 2008.

More than 5,000 people have been killed so far this year, according to United Nations data.

Monday's blasts struck during Baghdad's morning rush hour, with reports of 13 bombs, most of them in Shia neighborhoods.

With bomb blasts continuing to rock Iraq and civilian deaths approaching 2008 levels, will the burning of the cities be far behind? Will Jeremiah's predictions of judgment be completely fulfilled in this current conflict?
