Iraq: Four people killed in bomb explosion in Baghdad


BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): A roadside bomb explosion killed four people and wounded four others on Thursday in Baghdad, an Interior Ministry source said.

The explosion took place when a minibus moving on a highway in Zaiyounah in eastern Baghdad came near, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The Iraqi security forces sealed off the scene while ambulances evacuated the victims to nearby hospitals, the source said.

Violence is still common in Iraq as the security situation deteriorated recently, which shaped a setback to the efforts of the Iraqi government to restore normalcy in the country after violence-torn Iraq held parliamentary elections on March 7.
