A civilian was killed and nine people were wounded in two roadside bomb explosions in southern Baghdad on Wednesday morning, an Interior Ministry source said.

A roadside bomb struck a police patrol near al-Rasheed vegetable wholesale market in Baghdad's southern district of Doura, killing a civilian and wounding seven people, including four policemen, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In a separate incident, another roadside bomb ripped through Doura district wounding two civilians and damaging several nearby buildings and civilian vehicles, the source said.

Violence in Iraq has plummeted since its peak in 2006-2007 when sectarian fighting almost plunged the country into civil war, but daily violence and sporadic high-profile attacks still common in the country.
