Two bombings rocked the Iraqi capital city of Baghdad late on Thursday, killing at least 12 people and injuring 45 others, an interior ministry official said.
The deadly bomb attacks hit the city's northeastern district of Shaab and killed least 12 people, including two policemen and two Iraqi troops, and injured 45 others, the official told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
The source added that the second bomb went off following the first one when the wounded were being evacuated.
Baghdad has frequently seen militant attacks almost on a daily basis. The United States has announced to withdraw the last U.S. troops by the end of the year, raising the concern over the country's volatile security situation.
