BAGHDAD (AFP) - At least 12 people were killed and 26 others wounded on Friday when a car bomb struck a crowded market in the southern Baghdad neighbourhood of Dora, police said. Women and children were among the dead in the attack that also destroyed nearly a dozen shops in the Abu Dshir market, a police officer told AFP, adding that several bodies were burnt beyond recognition. The bombing followed an earlier blast in the same primarily Sunni Baghdad district of Dora where a booby trapped bomb exploded near a minibus, an interior ministry official said on condition of anonymity. A civilian was killed and a dozen people were wounded in the attack, which occurred shortly after an American patrol had passed by, the official said. And around midday a bomb exploded in a market in the centre of the restive northern city of Mosul, killing two people and wounding 12, a police officer told an AFP correspondent.
