Two bombings, including a suicide attack on a security post outside Baghdad, have killed at least 11 people in Iraq.

Police officials said the deadliest attack took place when a suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into an abandoned building used by security forces in the town of Tarmiyah, 30 miles north of Baghdad.

The officials said five soldiers and three policemen were killed, and at least 16 members of the security forces were injured.

Police said another bombing on a commercial street in Baghdad's northern district of Khazimiyah killed three people and wounded eight.

Medical officials confirmed the casualities.
