BAGHDAD – Authorities in Iraq say bombings and a shooting have killed at least 11 people in and around the capital, Baghdad.
Police officials say three roadside bombs went off simultaneously Saturday targeting an army convoy just southeast of Baghdad, killing four soldiers and wounding nine.
They say a bomb near an outdoor market killed two people in the town of Youssifiya just south of Baghdad. In the northeastern suburbs of the capital, police say gunmen killed two people in a drive-by shooting.
In Rashidiya just north of Baghdad, they say a bomb exploded near a vegetable and fruit market, killing three people and wounding five.
Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to journalists.
