Twin blasts rock Baghdad, four killed

Violence has ebbed across Iraq in recent years, but militants still launch deadly attacks around the country.



Baghdad: Iraqi officials say two blasts have killed four people in northwestern Baghdad, two days after a series of attacks claimed the lives of 30 in the capital and across the country.

Police officials said on Saturday that the first bomb exploded inside a minibus in the Shi’ite neighbourhood of Ishkouk. Seconds later, a roadside bomb exploded a few meters away, hitting another civilian car.

A medic at the nearby al-Nour hospital said that four people including a woman were killed and 13 others were wounded in the two blasts.

The officials spoke anonymously as they were not allowed to speak to the media.
