10 dead in Baghdad suicide bombings

Two car bombs killed 10 civilians on Saturday in a blast at a petrol station in central Iraq and another one targeting a two-car convoy carrying foreigners through central Baghdad, police said. A suicide bomber killed six when he drove his pickup into a crowded station in Samarra, 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad, said police Lt. Col. Mahmoud Mohammed. Twelve people were wounded and nine cars destroyed, he added. In central Baghdad, a parked car bomb detonated when two armored cars drove by, killing four people, Lt. Thaer Mahmoud said. No one in the convoy was wounded, but one of the armored cars was damaged and removed by US forces, Mahmoud said. The foreigners were not immediately identified, but none of them were wounded, he added.
