The Arab League condemned on Sunday a spate of deadly blasts hitting the Iraqi capital of Baghdad and claiming the lives of dozens of people.

The Arab League denounces these terrorist attacks which are a serious development that needs to be studied, said the head of the Arab League chief's office, Ambassador Hisham Yousef, in a statement.

"We are following the situation with deep concern through our diplomatic mission in Baghdad," he said.

"We urge the political leadership in the country to promptly form a new government to be able to bring the security situation under control as quickly as possible," Yousef said.

Earlier on Sunday, 30 people were killed and 224 others wounded in Baghdad car bomb attacks targeted at the Iranian embassy, Mansour-Melia Hotel and the consulate office of the Egyptian embassy.

Sporadic attacks, including deadly bombings, still common in Iraq about a month after the country held their landmark parliamentary election which is widely expected to shape the future of the war-torn country.
