Bombs kill 7 near Baghdad, say Police
Saturday 26 November 2011
Iraqi officials say seven people have been killed in two blasts in central Iraq.
Police officials said two bombs were planted early this morning in a spot where day labourers gather in the mostly Sunni village of al-Zaidan, near the town of Abu Ghraib west of Baghdad.
The officials say the bombs, which exploded minutes apart, wounded 11 other laborers.
A health official at Abu Ghraib general hospital confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to release the information.
Violence has ebbed across Iraq, but deadly bombings and shootings still occur almost daily as US troops prepare to leave by the end of the year. AP
