BAGHDAD – Iraqi police say bombs at two Shiite mosques in Baghdad have killed 11 people and injured 30.
Police officials say the bombs went off Thursday morning as worshippers left two separate mosques after early morning prayers celebrating the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
A police official said a suicide car bomber killed seven and injured 21 in an attack that targeted an Iraqi army patrol protecting worshippers in the mainly Shiite neighborhood of Zafaraniyah. Two of the dead were soldiers.
A separate police official said the other attack targeted worshippers leaving the Rasoul mosque in eastern Baghdad, killing four.
The police officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press.
