Bombing Near Baghdad Funeral Site Kills 5


Iraqi police say five people have been killed in a bomb blast near a funeral tent in the capital.

Authorities say another 28 people were wounded in Wednesday's blast in Baghdad's mostly Shi'ite slum of Sadr City.

Elsewhere in the country Wednesday, Iraqi officials say a car bomb blast killed six people, including two traffic police officers, in western Anbar province.

Authorities say a police checkpoint in the provincial capital, Ramadi, was the target of the attack. Sixteen people were wounded in the explosion.

Iraq has seen multiple deadly attacks in the two weeks since U.S. combat troops withdrew from Iraqi cities.
