PanARMENIAN.Net - Iraqi officials say two separate attacks in Baghdad have killed five and wounded 31 people, AP reported.

A police officer said on Thursday, April 26 that two civilians died when a roadside bomb went off near a passing army patrol in the eastern Sadr City neighborhood. He says 16 people were wounded in that blast, including three soldiers.

Another police officer says a parked car bomb went off next to a police patrol in the northern Hurriyah neighborhood, killing three civilians and injuring 15 others.

Two medical officials in nearby hospitals confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
