Iraqi officials say car bomb near bus stop kills 5

BAGHDAD – Iraqi police say a car bomb explosion near a bus stop has killed five people and wounded 15 others in the capital, Baghdad.

The officials say the blast took place Thursday morning near a bus stop in the mainly Shiite neighborhood of Hurriyah as commuters were gathering to catch rides to different parts of Baghdad. Five minibuses were damaged or burnt in the attack.

Medics in a nearby hospital confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

Violence has ebbed in Iraq, but deadly attacks are still frequent.
