Authorities in Iraq say two bombings have killed seven people in the capital, Baghdad.



Baghdad: Authorities in Iraq say two bombings have killed seven people in the capital, Baghdad.

Police officials say one bomb exploded today near a small restaurant in Baghdad's mainly Shiite southeastern district of Zafaraniyah, killing four people and wounding 13.

Later, police say a bomb blast missed a passing police patrol, but killed three civilians and wounded eight in western Baghdad. They say the blast also damaged several cars.

Medical officials in nearby hospitals confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to talk to journalists.

Iraq sees near-daily attacks, mainly targeting the country's Shiite majority and security forces. The attacks often are claimed by the Islamic State group, which seized about a third of the country last year.
