BAGHDAD — A string of bombings targeting Baghdad's Christian community killed at least four people and wounded 19 others Wednesday, officials said, less than two weeks after a bloody siege at a Baghdad church left scores dead.

Police said at least 11 roadside bombs detonated within an hour of each other in three predominantly Christian areas of central Baghdad early Wednesday. Four of the blasts hit houses belonging to Christians, and two mortar rounds also struck Christian enclaves of the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Dora in south Baghdad.

In all, four people were killed and 19 wounded, according to police and hospital officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. It was not immediately clear whether the dead were Christians.
