BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi officials say two bomb attacks have killed six people in two cities.
In the first incident Friday, a police officer said attackers detonated a bomb as an army jeep was driving through the western Baghdad neighborhood of Abu Ghraib, killing three soldiers.
Later, another police officer said a bomb exploded near a vegetable stand, killing three civilians and wounding 15 in the Shiite-dominated city of Hillah, 95 kilometers (60 miles) south of Baghdad.
Health officials confirmed the tolls. All spoke anonymously because they were not allowed to brief reporters.
There were no claims of responsibility.
The attacks were typical of al-Qaida's Iraqi branch. Its Sunni militants often attack Shiites, seeing them as heretics, and also aiming to undermine the country's Shiite-led government.
