Baghdad: Iraqi authorities say bombings and a shooting have killed six people around the capital.

Police officials say the deadliest of today`s attacks came when a bomb exploded at an outdoor market in Baghdad`s southeastern suburbs, killing three and wounding 11 others.

Two people were killed and seven others were wounded in a bomb blast inside a restaurant in the capital`s northeastern suburb of Husseiniyah, said police.

Also in Baghdad, gunmen killed the owner of a grocery store as he was walking near his house in the neighbourhood of Hurriyah.

Medical officials confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they`re not authorised to talk to media.

At least 190 people have died in attacks across the country so far this month, according to an Associated Press count.
