Police officials say a roadside bomb struck an army patrol on Tuesday in Youssifiyah, just south of the capital, killing three soldiers and one civilian. At least eight people were wounded in the attack.

Later on, two separate blasts near a vegetable market and on a commercial street killed six people and wounded 21 others in western Baghdad.

Medics in nearby hospitals confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Baghdad and outlying areas see near-daily bombings frequently claimed by the Islamic State group, which seized large parts of the country during a stunning blitz last year.
