BAGHDAD - A series of explosions struck Baghdad on Thursday, the first apparently coordinated attacks on Iraq's capital since a crisis erupted between its Shi'ite-led government and Sunni rivals after the withdrawal of the last US troops, police said.

Two roadside bombs exploded in the central Baghdad area, killing at least four people and wounding 14 more, while a car bomb hit the commercial Karrada district, wounding five people, police and security officials said.

Two more explosions hit northern Baghdad, police and witnesses said. There were no immediate reports of casualties from those blasts.
