BAGHDAD (AP) — At least 12 people have been killed today in attacks in and around the Iraqi capital.
Police officials say six were killed and 15 wounded when a car bomb went off in western Baghdad near a tent serving Shiite pilgrims heading to the holy Shiite city of Karbala.
Earlier in the day, three people were killed and 11 others were wounded when a bomb exploded at an outdoor market in a southeastern suburb of Baghdad.
Police say two people were killed and seven others were wounded in a bomb blast inside a restaurant in a northeastern suburb of the capital.
And gunmen killed the owner of a grocery store as he was walking near his Baghdad home.
At least 196 people have died in attacks across the country so far this month, according to an Associated Press count.
