font size    

The death toll from a car bombing in eastern Baghdad on Wednesday has risen to 20, with about 40 others wounded, a police source told Xinhua.

According to latest report, 20 people were killed and about 40 others injured in the car bomb attack which occurred beside a traffic police center in the eastern New Baghdad district, the source said.

The source also said that another car bomb attacked a police patrol in eastern Baghdad, but gave no information on any possible casualties.

The two attacks came less than an hour after the trial of former Iraqi president and his seven aides resumed in a Baghdad court.

Sectarian tensions have soared in Iraq since the Feb. 22 bombing of the Golden Mosque, one of the holiest Shiite mosques.
