Iraq security forces face criticism

Government under fire as ministries among targets in string of co-ordinated attacks.

    A wave of bombings in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad has left at least 112 people dead and many more wounded.

    The blasts happened within minutes of each other, signalling a co-ordinated attack with high-profile government ministries among the targets.

    The attacks follow bombings of ministry buildings in August and October, prompting some to suggest that the security forces have been infiltrated by anti-government groups.
