Iraq: Bombs kill 10 north of Baghdad

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi authorities say three bomb blasts shortly before sunset north of Baghdad have killed 10 people and wounded 31.

The first bomb Wednesday went off in Baqouba, about 60 kilometers (35 miles) northeast of the Iraqi capital. Police say two civilians and one police officer were killed, and five people were wounded.

Minutes later, authorities say a car bomb exploded in a market in Muqdadiyah, about 90 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad. A second blast struck as police arrived on the scene. Police say the toll for both bombings in the town is seven killed and 26 wounded.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualties. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information to reporters.
