Iraq: Attacks outside Baghdad kill at least 10 people

Iraqi officials say separate attacks outside Baghdad have killed at least 10 people.

Police say the deadliest attack Wednesday took place in the town of Latifiyah, where a suicide bomber struck an army checkpoint, killing four civilians and three soldiers. They added that 11 others were wounded.

The town is located about 20 miles (30 kilometers) south of Baghdad.

Police say three more civilians were killed and 12 wounded in a bomb explosion at an outdoor market in Baghdad's southeast suburb of Nahrawan.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release the information.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks. The Islamic State group has been linked to a number of recent attacks around the capital.
