BAGHDAD - A French embassy convoy in Iraq was hit by a roadside bomb in Baghdad on Monday, wounding at least seven people and underscoring the still shaky security situation in the capital, local security sources said.

Details about the attack were unclear, but at least seven people were wounded when the convoy was hit in the central part of the city, the sources said.

An embassy spokesman was not immediately available for comment.

A Reuters witness said one of the cars in the convoy was badly damaged along with two civilian cars.
