2 dead, 11 wounded in Baghdad bombings

Two civilians were killed and 11 were wounded in three bombings Monday in Baghdad, Iraqi Interior Ministry officials told CNN.

A roadside bomb Monday afternoon near a coffee shop in southeastern Baghdad claimed one life and wounded six people, the officials said, while another person was killed and three were wounded in a blast in northern Baghdad Monday evening.

Officials said the bomb in the evening blast was attached to a civilian vehicle in a predominately Sunni neighborhood and that all the casualties were in the car at the time of the explosion.

A third blast Monday morning targeted civilians in western Baghdad's Al-Harthiya neighborhood, the officials said. Two civilians were wounded in that attack.
