Two suicide bombers kill 12 in separate attacks in Baghdad

Two suicide car bombers killed at least 12 people in separate attacks across the Iraqi capital Wednesday, police said.

A suicide car bomber slammed into a police checkpoint in Baghdad's Jadriyah district, killing 11 people and injuring 24, police said. The casualties included four slain policemen and six injured officers.

Hours later, police kept the neighborhood cordoned off and morning commuters passed by the wreckage on foot.

Several prominent Iraqi politicians, including President Jalal Talabbani, reside in Jadriyah. The area is also home to Baghdad University.

One civilian was killed and four hurt when another suicide car bomb detonated near Kasra in northeastern Baghdad, police said. The explosion also set fire to six parked cars, they said.

At least half a dozen other explosions were heard early Wednesday, some in the area of the Green Zone, where Iraq's parliament and the U.S. and British embassies are based, the AP said.

The U.S. military said it had no information on the blasts.

In other violence, gunmen kidnapped six Sunni men at a fake checkpoint 25 kilometers south of Baghdad at dawn, police said. The men were intercepted as they drove north toward the capital, their cars loaded with fruits and vegetables to sell there.

Police also said a Palestinian teacher was killed in a drive-by shooting Wednesday morning in eastern Baghdad.
