ULAIMANIYAH, Iraq — An Iraqi spokesman said Thursday that a car bomb north of Baghdad killed seven people.

The spokesman for the Diyala province police, Maj. Ghalib al-Karkhi, said the blast took place in the town of Muqdadiyah, about 60 miles (90 kilometers) north of Baghdad. He said 24 people were wounded.

Diyala province was once one of the strongholds of al-Qaida, and insurgents there still stage frequent attacks despite improved security in much of the country.
