A civilian was killed and 11 wounded in bomb and gunfire attacks in Baghdad and eastern Iraq's Diyala province on Wednesday, the police said.

A civilian was killed and three others were wounded when a magnetic bomb attached to a car detonated in Baghdad's western neighborhood of al-Ameriyah, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In separate incident, two policemen were wounded in a roadside bomb explosion near their patrol in Baghdad's southern district of Doura, the source said.

Also in Baghdad, two civilians were wounded in a roadside bomb explosion in Palestine Street in eastern the capital in the morning, the source added.

In Diyala, three family members were wounded when unknown gunmen attacked their house in the city of Khalis, near the provincial capital city of Baquba, some 65 km northeast of Baghdad, a source from the provincial operations command told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The attack took place at dawn when the attackers opened fire on the house with assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, the source said.
