At least seven people have been killed and nearly two dozen others injured in separate bomb attacks and shooting incidents in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, security and medical sources say.

A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said at least one civilian lost his life and seven others sustained injured when a roadside bomb went off in Baghdad’s central neighborhood of al-Nahza on Saturday, Arabic-language al-Baghdadia satellite television network reported.

Security forces immediately cordoned off the site of the attack, and ambulance workers ferried the wounded to a nearby hospital.

Additionally, a civilian was killed and six others injured when an improvised explosive device detonated close to a commercial district in al-Kariat area of northern Baghdad.

Elsewhere in Mahmoudiyah, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Baghdad, a bomb attack near a popular market claimed one civilian life and left four others injured.
