Ten people were killed in a double car bombing in western Baghdad, Iraqi officials said Sunday.
Police and hospital officials said the bombs struck within minutes of each other in two mainly Shiite neighborhoods.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release the information, said 12 people also were wounded in the attacks.
The explosions occurred just before the start of Iftar, the meal that breaks the daily dawn-to-dusk fast during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
