Baghdad (IraqiNews.com)Six persons were wounded as two bomb blasts took place in southeast and west of Baghdad, a security source said on Tuesday.

“A bomb, placed near a market at Bawi region in al-Mada’in district, southeast of Baghdad, exploded in the evening, leaving three civilians wounded,” the source told Alghad Press.

“Security troops cordoned off the blast spot and prevented people from approaching.

Ambulances transferred the wounded to hospital for treatment, the source said.

In related news, Baghdad News website quoted another source as saying that “another bomb blast took place in west of Baghdad, leaving three others wounded.”

The injured were taken to hospital for treatment, the source, who asked to remain anonymous, added.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State Sunni extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

114 Iraqi civilians were killed, while 244 others were wounded as result of terrorism, violence and armed conflicts, according to a monthly release by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), issued on Wednesday.

Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate, coming in the first place with 177 civilian casualties (38 killed, 139 injured).

Anbar province followed with 36 killed and 55 injured, and then Kirkuk with 18 killed and 33 injured.
