Iraq PM orders probe after blasts

Investigation follows security breaches that preceded bombings that killed at least 64 people in the capital Baghdad.

    Nouri al-Maliki, Iraq's prime minister, is understood to have ordered an investigation into the security breaches which preceded a series of deadly bombings in Baghdad, the capital, on Tuesday.

    Al-Maliki spent part of Wednesday visiting victims of the attacks, which struck mainly Shia districts of the capital, leaving at least 64 people dead.

    Hundreds more were injured in 16 separate incidents, as Rawya Rageh reports.
