Bomb Attacks Kill 15 in Baghdad, 5 in Kirkuk


Iraqi security officials say a car bomb blast near a Shi'ite mosque in eastern Baghdad has killed 10 people and wounded 25 others.

Officials say the explosion occurred Wednesday in a crowded marketplace in the majority Shi'ite neighborhood of Kamaliyah.

Later, two car bombs exploded in another eastern suburb, killing five day laborers and wounding 10 others.

The blasts follow Tuesday's suicide car bomb attack targeting Shi'ite day laborers in Baghdad that killed 70 and wounded 230.

Also Wednesday in the town of Riyadh, some 50 kilometers south of Kirkuk, suicide attackers drove two vehicles into an Iraqi army base and then detonated explosives that killed at least five soldiers and wounded 10 others.

In a village south of Baghdad, gunmen stormed a house and killed nine members of a Shi'ite family.
