Three parked cars exploded in a predominantly Shi'ite area in Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 12 people and wounding 19, police said. The first explosion, which occurred about 11 a.m., targeted a passing police patrol, killing six people - three policemen and three pedestrians - and wounding nine others, a police officer said. At least seven cars also were damaged in the blast, which struck near to the Interior Ministry's nationality and social affairs directorate and the 14th of July bridge in Karradah, he added. Another parked car bomb about 500 meters (yards) away struck at about the same time, ripping through a bustling market of vegetables and household goods, killing three civilians and wounding five others, the policeman added.
