A bomb planted in a motorcycle parked in the courtyard of a Shiite mosque in northern Baghdad exploded Tuesday and killed 11 people and wounded at least nine, as mostly sectarian violence across Iraq left a total of 41 dead. An hour later, police said a roadside bomb exploded outside a bakery in southeast Baghdad, killing three bystanders and wounding 12. Another five people died earlier when a car bomb exploded at the entrance to a police station in Baghdad's biggest Shiite neighborhood.
