BAGHDAD —

Iraqi officials say two separate bomb attacks in commercial areas of predominantly Sunni neighborhoods of Baghdad have killed at least four civilians.

A police officer says the first bomb exploded during rush hour Sunday morning in the Amiriyah neighborhood, killing two pedestrians and wounding nine others. He added that another roadside bomb went off in nearby Khadra neighborhood, killing two civilians and wounding eight.

A medical official confirmed the causality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

More than 3,000 people have been killed in violence over the past few months, raising fears that Iraq could see a new round of widespread sectarian bloodshed similar to that which brought the country to the edge of civil war in 2006 and 2007.
