Three Iraqis were killed and 23 others injured in three attacks in Baghdad on Tuesday, an Interior Ministry source said.

A roadside bomb detonated in the afternoon near the convoy of Raid Fahmi, Iraqi Minister of Sciences and Technology, while traveling near the rear gate of Babel Hotel in the Jadriya neighborhood in central Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

It was unknown whether Fahmi was in the convoy during the attack which wounded one of the minister's bodyguards and two bystanders, the source said.

In separate incident, a roadside bomb struck a police commando patrol near the University of Technology in the al-Sina'a street in eastern Baghdad, killing two policemen and a civilian and injuring 17 people, including two policemen, he said.

Also in the day, a roadside bomb went off near a police patrol close to the al-Andalus Square, injuring three policemen and two bystanders, he said, adding one of the patrol's vehicles was damaged by the blast.

Despite security gains in recent months in Iraq, there are still sporadic bombings, which shape setback to the Iraqi government.
