Iraqi officials: Bombings in and around Baghdad kill at least 7 people

Iraqi officials say a new string of bombings in and around Baghdad has killed at least seven people.

A police officer says a parked car bomb ripped through an outdoor market in Baghdad's western Shurta district on Tuesday morning, killing four people and wounding 11.

Another car bomb, this one in the southwestern Maalef neighborhood, killed two people and wounded nine. And in the northern suburb of Taji, a roadside bomb struck a police convoy, killing one policeman and wounding four.

Two medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to media.

The explosions came a day after at least 23 people were killed in a series of car bombings in and around the Iraqi capital.
