A civilian was killed and nine people wounded in separate bomb attacks in Baghdad on Monday morning, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua.

A civilian who works for a Shiite political party office was killed when a sticky bomb attached to his car detonated in Baghdad 's northeastern neighborhood of al-Hussieniyah, the source said on condition of anonymity.

In a separate incident, a roadside bomb struck a police patrol in Baghdad's eastern district of Sadr City, wounding a policeman and six passersby, the source said.

Also in the capital, a roadside bomb went off and wounded two civilians in Baghdad's southern district of Doura, the source added.

Daily violence in the country underscore the challenges that the Iraqi security forces are facing as they struggle to restore stability and normalcy in Iraqi cities about eight months before the departure of all American forces by the end of 2011.
