BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Bombs killed more than 40 people in Iraq on Wednesday, including 24 at a market in Baghdad, where insurgents defied a U.S.-backed security clampdown in its fourth week. 

A further 35 people were wounded in the attack on the Shorja wholesale market in central Baghdad, police said. Attacks in recent days have shattered a relative calm this past month.
