Iraqi security forces and rescuers search for survivors in the rubble of a bomb attack near the new site of the Finance Ministry. A series of five coordinated attacks Tuesday left at least 127 dead and wounded more than 500 in Baghdad.
Smoke billows from the center of the Iraqi capital on Tuesday. The blasts are the most violent insurgent attacks to hit Baghdad since a pair of car bombs struck near government offices on Oct. 25, 2009.
The U.S. military dispatched troops and forensics equipment following the explosions. Tuesday's attacks once more bring into question whether the Iraqi government is able to fulfill its role in providing front-line security.
