BAGHDAD — Two car bombs blew up in a Baghdad suburb, the deadlier of two attacks Monday that left at least 10 dead in the Iraqi capital.
The two parked cars exploded simultaneously in a street in Husseinya, killing five civilians and a police officer at a nearby checkpoint, two police officers said. Twenty-one other people including 17 civilians were wounded, the officers added.
Hussainya is about 15 miles outside central Baghdad.
Inside Baghdad, a bomb went off outside a restaurant at lunchtime in the southern Dora neighborhood, two other police officers said. Four customers at the restaurant were killed and 11 people wounded, they added. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
