BAGHDAD (AP) -- Officials in Iraq say at least 10 people have died in a series of bombings, including a blast that narrowly missed an Oil Ministry official.
They say two of the bombs targeted a crowded Baghdad square in morning rush hour. Six people died and more than 20 others were wounded, including 10 policemen.
Elsewhere in the capital, a bomb exploded at the home of a senior Oil Ministry official on his way to work. He suffered minor injuries, but a spokesman says his driver was gravely wounded.
Today's explosions largely appeared to target Iraqi police, soldiers and officials rather than American troops.
In southern Iraq, authorities say a car bomb exploded in a parking lot near a provincial council office, killing two policemen and a 10-year-old girl.
