Seven Killed In Two Iraqi Bomb Attacks

Iraqi officials say two bombings, one near a marketplace and the other near a courthouse, have killed seven people.

The Associated Press cites anonymous police officials as saying the first of the attacks on April 24 took place near an outdoor market in the Sunni town of Tarmiyiah, 50 kilometers north of Baghdad. Four people were killed and eight were wounded.

A second bomb, near a courthouse in the town of Mahmudiyah, south of Baghdad, killed three people and wounded nine others.

The Associated Press reports that no group immediately claimed responsibility.

The Sunni extremist militant group Islamic State has claimed responsibility for scores of past attacks targeting security forces and Iraq's majority Shiites.
