Iraqi security officials say at least four people have been killed and nearly a dozen others injured in separate bomb attacks against two residential areas in the capital, Baghdad.

A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said two civilians lost their lives and seven others sustained injuries when a bombing attack struck a commercial district in the Ghazaliya neighborhood of western Baghdad on Sunday, Arabic-language satellite television network al-Baghdadia reported.

Earlier in the day, two anti-al-Qaeda Sahwa tribal fighters were killed and three others wounded when an improvised explosive device exploded in the Hour Rajab agricultural region on Baghdad’s southern outskirts.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.

The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) says a total of 812 Iraqis were killed and another 1,726 were injured in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in April. A great portion of the fatalities was recorded in Baghdad, where 319 civilians were killed.
