Two people were killed and nine others were wounded in a bomb and a gunfire attacks in western and southern Baghdad, an Interior Ministry source said on Monday.

A policeman and a civilian were killed in a roadside bomb explosion in the morning near the traffic police department in the Ghazaliyah district in western Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Five traffic policemen and three civilians were wounded by the blast, the source said.

In another incident, gunmen in a car opened fire from their assault rifles late on Sunday at the home of Sinan al-Shibibi, Iraq's central bank governor, in Jadriyah neighborhood in capital' s south, wounding one of his bodyguards, the source said.

Violence and some high-profile attacks are still common in Iraqi cities as part of recent deterioration in security which shaped a setback to the efforts of the Iraqi government to restore normalcy in the country five months after violence-torn Iraq held parliamentary elections on March 7.
