Roadside bombs targeting police patrols exploded in Baghdad and nearby Iskandariyah Thursday, killing at least five people and wounding a dozen others, police said. The blast in Baghdad's mostly Sunni Muslim neighborhood of Azamiyah killed two policemen and two bystanders, police Lt. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said. At least seven others, two policemen and five civilians, were wounded, he said. Another bomb in the capital wounded four civilians but no police in the downtown district of Karradah, which is mostly Shi'ite but has a large Sunni minority.
