BAGHDAD - At least four people were killed and 28 wounded when a car bomb exploded at the entrance to a Baghdad market in a mainly Shi'ite Muslim district on Thursday, two hospital sources said.

A separate car bomb attack on the northern outskirts of the Iraqi capital targeting a government building killed four and wounded 20, police said.

The attacks were the latest in a wave of bombings this month that have targeted mainly Shi'ite Muslim pilgrims and religious sites and have revived fears of widespread sectarian violence.
