font size    

Two people were killed and 14 others wounded in a roadside bomb and mortar attacks in Baghdad on Wednesday, an Interior Ministry source said.

A roadside bomb went off near a gas station in Baghdad's northeastern neighborhood of Shaab, killing two people and wounding eight others, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The blast also damaged several civilian cars and nearby buildings.

Meanwhile, mortar rounds landed on the residential area of Abu Dshier in the morning, wounding six people, according to the source.

Violence persists in Baghdad despite the presence of tens of thousands of U.S. and Iraqi soldiers across the capital in a major security crackdown aimed at curbing insurgency and sectarian violence in the war-torn country.
