Bombs kill 5 in Baghdad: Iraqi police

Violence has ebbed across Iraq, but deadly bombings and shootings still occur almost daily.



Baghdad: Iraqi officials say five people have been killed in a series of blasts in western Baghdad.

Police officials say five bombs were planted early Friday near three houses and two parking lots in the mostly Sunni neighbourhood of Ghazaliyah.

The pre-dawn blasts also wounded 12 people, including three children and two women.

A doctor at al-Yarmouk hospital confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to release the information.
