BAGHDAD  — Iraqi police said a car bomb exploded north of the city of Baqouba, killing six people on Wednesday. It is the third bombing in the area in as many days.

A police spokesman in Diyala province, Ghalib al-Karkhi, said Wednesday's attack in a shopping area in the village of Abu Sayda also wounded 17 people.

On Tuesday, a car bomb just north of Baghdad killed one person and wounded seven Iranian pilgrims. And a car bomb exploded Monday near a restaurant in Baqouba, killing six people.

The city is a former insurgent stronghold about 35 miles (60 kilometers) north of Baghdad.
