16:21, November 29, 2011

BAGHDAD, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Three people were killed and five others, including an Iraqi MP, were wounded Monday in separate bomb attacks in central Iraq, the police said.

Two civilians were killed and four passers-by wounded when a sticky bomb attached to their car detonated while moving in Baghdad's western district of Mansour, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In a separate incident, Mu'ayad al-Taiyb, an Iraqi member of parliament, was wounded when a mortar round landed near the Iraqi parliament in Baghdad Green Zone, the source said.

Taiyb was leaving a parliament session in the afternoon when the attack took place, the source added.

The heavily fortified Green Zone has been frequently targeted by insurgents' mortar and rocket attacks. The roughly 10 square km zone is located on the west bank of the Tigris River which bisects the Iraqi capital.
