BAGHDAD (AP) -- Two civilians are dead and 19 people are wounded after a bicycle carrying explosives blew up at a market north of Baghdad.
An Iraqi police officer says the bike was left near an Iraqi military truck. The soldiers from the truck were patrolling the market on foot when the bomb went off.
In other violence, the Iraqi military says a roadside bomb killed one soldier and injured another in a town northeast of Baghdad.
And late yesterday, a member of a Sunni group allied with U.S. forces was killed by a bomb stuck to his car.
Today's attacks came as Army General David Petraeus handed over his command of U.S. and coalition forces to General Ray Odierno in a ceremony in Baghdad.
