Baghdad: Security and medical officials say a pair of bombs has hit an Iraqi army patrol in north Baghdad, killing one Iraqi soldier.

An Iraqi army officer says the roadside bombs went off in quick succession while the patrol was travelling through the Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah on Sunday.

A police officer and a doctor at a nearby hospital confirmed the death toll and said nine people were wounded.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
Violence has significantly dropped in Iraq since 2008, but attacks still occur, particularly in Baghdad, where al Qaeda militants appear determined to show they are not a spent force.
