Bombings have targeted Baghdad's Christian neighbourhoods today, killing at least four people, Iraqi officials said.

Police said predominantly Christian areas of Camp Sara, Sinaa Street and al-Ghadeer in central Baghdad were among the districts hit by bombings.

Officials said four people were killed and 11 wounded. Hospital officials confirmed the death toll.

The attacks underscore the threat to Iraq's minority Christian community after the church massacre last week that left 58 people dead.

Al-Qa'ida militants have claimed that attack. They also threatened more violence against Iraq's Christians.
