BAGHDAD (AP) -- Authorities in Iraq say two separate car bombs inside parking lot of two hotels have killed 10 people in the capital Baghdad.

Police officials say a car bomb exploded in the parking lot of Babil Hotel late Thursday, killing six people and wounding 14 others.

About one minute later, a second car bomb blast inside the parking lot of Cristal Hotel, formerly Sheraton, killed four people and wounded 13 others.

Medical officials confirmed the causality figures from both attacks. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Nobody claimed responsibility, but Iraq is seeing almost daily attacks that have been frequently claimed by Islamic State group that seized large swath of the country during a blitz last year.
