FALLUJA, Iraq - Two bombs exploded near a crowded market in the Iraqi city of Falluja on Monday, killing six people and injuring two dozen, while two roadside bombs in Diyala province killed 10, security and hospital sources said.

In a separate incident in the Iraqi capital, a roadside bomb killed three people.

The first blast in central Falluja killed two policemen with a bomb disposal unit that had been sent to dismantle a car bomb, and a second device exploded shortly after the first, killing four civilians, an Interior Ministry source said.

A police officer who asked not to be identified said the first explosion was caused by a roadside bomb, followed by a car bomb.
