BAGHDAD - Bombs exploded in three towns and villages in Iraq's disputed territories on Monday, killing at least 11 people in the second day of attacks in areas at the center of a feud between Baghdad and autonomous Kurdistan.

Two blasts hit a Shi'ite district in Tuz Khurmato, killing at least four and wounding 24 and a truck bomb killed seven in a Shabak minority area near Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of the capital, security and local officials said.

Another car bomb hit a second village near Mosul without causing any casualties, police said.

No one claimed responsibility for Monday's blasts. But the areas have been a potential flashpoint between the Arab-led central government and ethnic Kurds since the last American troops left the country a year ago.
