Three women were among those killed. Another six people were wounded. The attack is the latest in the affluent Mansour district and comes after gunmen abducted more than 30 Iraqis in Baghdad this week.

North of the capital, a roadside bomb killed three Iraqi soldiers near Kirkuk.

And the U.S. military said Wednesday three insurgents were killed Tuesday when an unmanned aircraft fired a missile at them while they were planting a roadside bomb near Balad Air Base. In other violence Tuesday, two U.S. soldiers were killed in separate incidents.
