BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say two car bombings in Baghdad have killed at least four civilians and wounded 19 others.
Two police officers say the deadliest of the Monday afternoon attacks came in the busy commercial Sadoun Street in central Baghdad, where a car bomb killed three civilians and wounded 10 others.
They added that another car bomb exploded in the capital's eastern New Baghdad area as police were waiting for explosives experts to dismantle it. A civilian bystander was killed and nine others were wounded.
Two medical officials confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
Although violence has decreased sharply in Iraq since the height of insurgency, militants are still capable to carry out lethal attacks nationwide.
