Twin Baghdad blasts kill five Iraqi troops

BAGHDAD - Two roadside bombs killed at least five Iraqi soldiers in Baghdad on Sunday in one of the most serious attacks on security forces in recent weeks, military and hospital officials said.
One bomb exploded in a public square and then a second blast went off nearby as an army patrol arrived in the mostly Sunni neighborhood of Adhamiya in the north of Baghdad, security officials said.
"Two roadside bombs exploded one after the other," Major General Qassim al-Moussawi, a spokesman for Baghdad security operations said. "Five people were killed, two army officers and three soldiers."
Three other soldiers and eight civilians were also wounded in the attack, a hospital official said.
