BAGHDAD (AP) -- Authorities in Iraq say bombings and mortar fire targeting public places have killed 14 people around the capital, Baghdad.

Police officials say the deadliest attack happened Sunday night when a car bomb exploded on a commercial street in downtown Baghdad, killing six people and wounding 13.

Earlier, a bomb blast near a market killed three people and wounded eight in al-Taji, just north of Baghdad.

Police said another bomb exploded in Baghdad's northeastern suburbs, killing two people and wounding five. A mortar shell also hit a house and killed three people in the village of Sabaa al-Bour, 30 kilometers (20 miles) north of Baghdad.

Medical officials confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to journalists.
