Eleven people were wounded in three bomb explosions in Baghdad on Thursday morning, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua.

In downtown Baghdad, a roadside bomb went off near a police patrol in an intersection in Bab al-Mu'adham area, damaging a police vehicle and wounding two policemen aboard, the source said on condition of anonymity.

Three civilians were also wounded by the blast, along with damaging several nearby civilian cars, the source said.

In a separate incident, a roadside bomb targeted a police patrol in al-Nidhal Street in Baghdad's central district of Karrada, wounding four passers-by, the source added.

In western Baghdad, a roadside bomb ripped through Iskan neighborhood, wounding two civilians, he said.

The attacks are part of wave of attacks against Iraq's government officials, security forces and civilians during the past few months.
