Four of the blasts hit houses belonging to Christians, and two mortar rounds also struck Christian enclaves of the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Dora in south Baghdad.In all, four people were killed and 19 wounded, according to police and hospital officials speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. It was not immediately clear whether the dead were Christians.
