BAGHDAD - Two bombs exploded in a mainly Shi'ite Muslim area of Iraq's capital Baghdad on Thursday, killing six people and wounding 17, police and hospital sources said.

One bomb was planted on a parked motorcycle and the other was a roadside device, they said.

The attacks occurred in the impoverished Sadr City neighborhood in northeast Baghdad.

Iraq is still plagued by a deadly Sunni Muslim insurgency and Shi'ite militias nearly nine years after the US-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein.
