BAGHDAD, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- At least three people were killed and 17 wounded in a car bomb explosion near a police headquarters in the Shiite holy city of Karbala southwest of Baghdad on Monday, a local police said.

A car bomb detonated near al-Hindiyah police headquarters in eastern Karbala, some 110 km southwest of Baghdad, killing three people and wounding 17 others, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The blast caused damages to the police building and destroyed several nearby police vehicles and civilian cars, the source said.

The attack came as a series of bomb attacks rampant Iraqi cities since Monday morning, killing and wounding dozens of Iraqis.

Violence and sporadic high profile attacks are still common in the Iraqi cities despite the dramatic decrease of violence over the past few years.
