Baghdad: At least 10 people were killed and 22 others wounded in two car bomb attacks on Wednesday that targeted predominately Shi`ite neighbourhoods in Baghdad, police and medical sources said.

Six civilians were killed when a car packed with explosives was detonated in the northeastern district of Sadr City. Twelve others were wounded in the crowded residential neighbourhood, the sources said.

Later in the day, a car bomb exploded in the northern al-Husseiniya district, killing four people and wounding 11.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Shi`ite are often targeted by Sunni Islamist insurgents the government is struggling to dislodge from large swathes of the country`s north and west.
