Two car bombs exploded near the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday, police said, and a Sunni Arab insurgent group claimed responsibility for a similar attack the day before. Tuesday's two car bombs exploded within two minutes of each other at about 10 a.m. in a public parking lot located about 150 meters from the front of the Iranian Embassy, wounding six civilians but causing no damage to the embassy or its guards, a police officer said.
