Iraq officials: Baghdad bombings kill 13; wound 22

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi police officials say multiple bombings in Baghdad killed at least 13 people and wounded 22.

The deadliest bombing struck a busy commercial street Monday in the Habibiya section of Baghdad's Sadr City, killing at least 9 people and wounding 22, officials said.

Earlier Monday in northwestern Baghdad, police say a bomb detonated near an intelligence branch of the Interior Ministry, killing four people, including two children.

Hospital officials corroborated the casualty figures. All officials spoke anonymously as they are not authorized to brief media.

While no one has claimed responsibility for this attack, the Islamic State militant group has claimed a number of recent bombings in the past.
