BAGHDAD – Authorities in Iraq say bombings targeting public places and pro-government Sunni fighters have killed 11 people around the capital, Baghdad.
Police officials say the deadliest attack took place Wednesday night when a bomb exploded inside a cafe in Baghdad's southeastern suburb of Jisr Diyala, killing six people and wounding 11 others.
Earlier, a bomb blast near a small restaurant killed three people and wounded four in Baghdad's northern suburb of Husseiniyah.
Police said a roadside bomb exploded near a patrol of Sahwa fighters in Baghdad's western suburbs, killing two members. Sahwa fighters joined forces with U.S. troops at the height of the Iraq war to fight Sunni militants.
