BAGHDAD, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) — A total of 11 people were killed and some 33 others wounded in two suicide bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Saturday, a police source said.
A suicide bomber blew up an explosive vest at the crowded market of al-Arabi in downtown Baghdad, leaving at least five people killed and some 13 others injured, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
