An explosives-laden car, parked on a road in Karrada, exploded at around 11:00 am, security officials said. A few minutes later another car bomb went off in the same area targeting a passing police patrol, they said. At least seven people, including three policemen, were killed in both the attacks, security officials and a medic at the capital's Ibn Nafis hospital said. By Ahmad Al-Rubaye/AFP/Getty.
