BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): At least 30 people were killed and 104 others wounded in separate violent attacks in Iraq on Monday, the police said.

An unidentified suicide bomber detonated his explosive belt in a cafe in Balad, some 80 km north of the capital Baghdad, killing 23 people and injuring 66 others, a police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The explosion damaged the cafe, and the wounded were taken to a hospital in Balad, a Shiite city in Salah ad Din province, the source added.

Elsewhere in Baquba, some 65 km northeast of Baghdad, four people were killed and 25 others wounded when a roadside bomb struck a popular market for fruits and vegetables , a local police said.

Three soldiers were killed and two others wounded when their car was attacked by gunmen in the south of Mosul, 400 km north of Baghdad.

Also on Monday, a total of 11 people were wounded in separate bombing attacks in the provinces of Diyala and Nineveh.

Iraq is witnessing its worst eruption of violence in recent years, which raises fears that the country is sliding back to a full-blown civil conflict that peaked in 2006 and 2007, when monthly death toll sometimes exceeded 3,000.

The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq recently reported that over 1,000 Iraqis were killed and more than 2,300 wounded in acts of terrorism and violence in July, the deadliest month in more than five years.
