Roadside bomb, gunmen kill 4 in Baghdad
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Iraqi officials say a roadside bomb and a gun attack have killed four people and wounded seven others in Baghdad.
The officials say the roadside bomb went off Friday morning near a market in Baghdad's teeming Shiite district of Sadr City. The explosion killed three people and wounded seven.
The officials say the bomb was hidden under a heap of trash and detonated as shoppers started arriving.
In the second attack, gunmen shot dead an Iraqi soldier in southern Baghdad after breaking into his house.
The police and hospital officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media.
The attacks come as Iraq is still counting the ballots from the March 7 parliamentary elections.
