Two car bombs in Baghdad kill six - police and medics
Two car bombs struck Baghdad on Monday, killing six people and wounding a dozen others, police and medical sources said.
The explosions occurred as the Shi'ite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki battles Sunni Islamist insurgents who have taken over large parts of northern and western Iraq and threatened the capital.
The first bomb exploded in the central district of Alawi, killing three people and wounding six. The second struck in the Shi'ite western neighborhood of Bayaa, also killing three people.
