A suicide car bomb struck an Iraqi army checkpoint in northern Baghdad on Sunday, killing a civilian and wounding 12 people, an Interior Ministry source said.

A suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into the checkpoint at the Antar Square in Adhamiyah district and blew it up on Sunday afternoon, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

"Only two soldiers were among the wounded and the rest were civilians," the source said, adding that the blast badly damaged several cars at the checkpoint and caused damages to surrounding shops and buildings.

Earlier in the day, the police reported the killing of a civilian and the wounding of eight others in bomb explosions in Baghdad's districts of Kamaliyah and Doura.

Sporadic attacks continue in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities despite the U.S. and Iraqi officials announced a relative lull in violence during the past months.
