Six killed in two Baghdad bomb blasts - Iraqi police
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two bombs exploded in a mainly Shi'ite Muslim area of Iraq's capital Baghdad on Thursday, killing six people and wounding 17, police and hospital sources said.
They said one bomb was planted on a parked motorcycle and that the other was a roadside device.
The attacks occurred in the impoverished Sadr City neighbourhood in northeast Baghdad.
