A sticky bomb attached to a civilian car detonated in central Baghdad on Sunday, leaving two people inside the car dead and two passers-by wounded, an Interior Ministry source said.

The explosion happened in Bab al-Muadhem district of Baghdad on Sunday afternoon, killing two and wounding two, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

Several civilian cars nearby were damaged and windows of adjacent buildings were blown out, the source added.

Violence has dropped dramatically since its peak in 2006 and 2007 when sectarian fighting nearly plunged the country into civil war, but shootings and bombings still occur on daily basis.
