Iraqi officials said bombs have killed two people and wounded at least 30 others in Baghdad's Sadr City area. Police and hospital officials said two bombs exploded a few seconds apart on Tuesday morning near a group of day laborers. They said one bomb was hidden in a food stall and the other was hidden in a nearby pile of trash. Though sectarian violence in Iraq has ebbed, the Shi'ite district of Sadr City continues to be targeted. At least eight people died in a bombing there on July 9, and a blast in the district killed 78 on June 24.
