Rush hour car bomb kills 2 in eastern Baghdad


BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a car bomb in eastern Baghdad has killed two civilians and wounded four on the 10th anniversary of the US-led invasion, the day after a series of well-coordinated attacks left scores dead.

Two police officers say the parked car exploded during rush hour Wednesday morning in the capital's eastern Zayona neighborhood. A medical official in a nearby hospital confirmed the casualty figures. All spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

The attack followed a bloody day in Baghdad, when insurgents set off a wave of car bombs and other explosions that killed 65.

Violence has ebbed sharply since the height of insurgency, but militants are still able to stage high-profile lethal attacks.
