At least 12 killed in two latest terrorist attacks in Baghdad

Two terrorist attacks took place in the Iraqi capital Tuesday, killing at least 12 and injuring 35.

A car bomb detonated at 9:30 a.m. (05:30 GMT) at the parking lot in central Baghdad, near the health ministry and the so-called Medical City complex of buildings including several hospitals and a forensic institute. Seven people were killed and 23 wounded in that blast, a police officer said.

Seconds after the detonation, a mortar landed in the area as well, the officer said, speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to talk to the media. Some 11 cars were also damaged by the explosion.

He added that 11 civilian cars were damaged.

Another parked car bomb went off near a police patrol in Palestine Street in eastern Baghdad, killing two civilians and wounding six others, said the police officer. Also, in Baghdad's southeastern area of Zafaraniyah, a roadside bomb targeting another police patrol killed one policeman and injured two pedestrians, the officer said.

Two more civilians were killed and four others injured when a roadside bomb went off around 9:30 a.m. (05:30 GMT) next to a mini bus traveling through Baghdad's eastern neighborhood of Baladiyat, the police officer added.
