Bombing attacks at a hospital and a market place Sunday killed five people and wounded at least 18 others in Iraq, police and hospital officials said. A bomb hidden beneath a pile of garbage exploded near a public health clinic packed with patients in a market in Khalis, some 80 kilometers north of Baghdad, police said. Two people were killed and 13 wounded in the attack, which officials said was targeting the town mayor who was touring the market at the time of the blast. The second attack came when a female suicide bomber blew herself up at a hospital in Amiriyat al-Fallujah in Anbar province near the city of Fallujah, about 65 kilometers west of Baghdad.
