The death toll from a car bomb explosion in central Baghdad earlier on Sunday morning rose to nine while some 30 others were wounded, an Interior Ministry source said.

"Our latest report said that up to nine people were killed and some 30 others wounded by the car bombing," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Earlier, the source put the toll at two killed and seven wounded when a car bomb parked near the Health Ministry in the Babal-Muadham district in central Baghdad detonated.

In separate incident, a roadside bomb went off near a U.S. patrol in the Beirut Square in eastern Baghdad, the source added. It was unknown whether the U.S. soldiers sustained any casualty, as the troops immediately cordoned off the scene, he said.

The U.S. military has no immediate comment on the incident. Also in the morning, two roadside bombs targeting an Iraqi Army convoy detonated coordinately near the College of Management and Economics in Baghdad's northern neighborhood of Waziriyah, killing a soldier, wounding six others and two civilians.
