BAQUBA, Iraq - Two bombs exploded among a group of government-supported militiamen in the Iraqi city of Baquba on Thursday, killing at least six people and wounding 23 others, a health official and a security source said.

The blasts struck a military base as members of the Sunni Sahwa militia lined up to collect their pay in Baquba, about 65 km (40 miles) northeast of Baghdad, the security source said.

"We have six killed and 23 wounded. This is an initial report because they are still transporting the casualties," said Faris al-Azzawi, a spokesman for the Diyala province health department.
