A car bomb exploded near an Iraqi police patrol in central Baghdad on Wednesday morning, killing two people and wounding eight others, an Interior Ministry official said.

The attack took place in Naser Square around 9:40 a.m. (1:40 a.m. ET)

In northeastern Baghdad, meanwhile, a roadside bomb exploded near a car in a Shiite section of the capital, wounding seven civilians, reported CNN.

Wednesday's violence came two days after deadly bombings claimed the lives of 39 people in three Iraqi cities, including what Iraqis called the deadliest attack in the capital in nearly four months.

At least 32 people were killed in a triple bombing in Baghdad on Monday, and another five were slain in a suicide attack in Baquba that was believed to have been launched by a teenage girl.

Two police officers died Monday in a roadside bombing in Samarra.
