A police officer says a parked car bomb ripped through an outdoor market in Baghdad's western Shurta district on Tuesday, killing four people and injuring 11.

Another car bomb, this one in the southwestern Maalef neighbourhood, killed two people and wounded nine. And in the northern suburb of Taji, a roadside bomb struck a police convoy, killing one policeman and wounding four.

The explosions came a day after at least 23 people were killed in a series of car bombings in and around the Iraqi capital.
