Car Bombs Hit Baghdad's Sadr City

Two car bombs have killed at least 10 people and wounded 38 in separate attacks in a Shia district of Baghdad, Iraq's interior ministry says.

The first bomb hit day labourers waiting for jobs in Sadr City, in eastern Baghdad.

The other bomb exploded soon after about 3km away, hitting a queue of people waiting to buy heating fuel.

There has been a rise in attacks in Iraq since US troops left last month, with dozens of people killed.

A political crisis in the country has seen tensions rise between the Shia majority and Sunni minority since the US troops withdrew.

Interior ministry officials said a roadside bomb later exploded on Muthana airport highway in central Baghdad, wounding at least six people.
