Two Iraqis were killed and 13 others injured in two bomb attacks targeted police patrols in Baghdad on Monday, an Interior Ministry source said.
"An explosion struck a police patrol near the Andulus Square in Baghdad's central district of Karrada, killing two civilians and wounding six people, including two policemen," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
A police vehicle was also damaged by the blast, the source said.
In separate incident, a roadside bomb detonated near a police patrol close to the Technology University in eastern Baghdad, damaging a police vehicle and wounding three policemen aboard, along with wounding four bystanders, the source added.
Despite security gains in recent months in Iraq, there are still sporadic bombings, which shape setback to the Iraqi government.
