World and national news in brief

BAGHDAD (AP) — A string of explosions tore through central Baghdad within minutes of each other on Thursday, followed by a coordinated assault by gunmen who raided a government building and battled security forces in the streets. The attack left at least 24 people dead and scores wounded. The fighting lasted about an hour, ending with security forces storming the building, killing the gunmen and evacuating hundreds of people who had hunkered down in their offices, according to police. The large and complex assault on Justice Ministry offices in the heart of downtown Baghdad came less than a week before the 10-year anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, showing how vulnerable this country remains to insurgent attacks. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the attack bore the hallmarks of al-Qaida’s Iraqi arm.
