Baghdad: Iraqi officials say two separate explosions in Baghdad have killed four people and wounded 14.

Two police officers say a bomb attached to a policeman's car exploded early today in the capital's northern Kazimiyah neighborhood, killing an officer and a bystander and wounding five others.

Two other police officers said a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into an army checkpoint in Baghdad's western suburb of Abu Ghraib few hours later, killing two soldiers and wounding nine people, of which four were civilians.

Two health officials confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke anonymously, as they were not authorized to release information.

Police and military personnel are favorite targets of militants seeking to undermine the Iraqi government's efforts to maintain security.
