Iraqi officials say bombings have targeted Baghdad’s Christian neighborhoods, killing at least four people. The attacks underscore the threat to Iraq’s minority Christian community following the church massacre last week that left 58 people dead. Al-Qaida militants have claimed responsibility for that attack. The BBC’s Jim Muir joins us from Baghdad.
