BAGHDAD (AP) -- Authorities in Iraq say bombings targeting Shiite districts have killed 15 people in and around Baghdad.

Police officials say a bomb exploded Sunday night near a cafe in the Shiite district of al-Obeidi on the eastern edge of Baghdad, killing four people and wounding 14 others.

Another evening bomb blast near a small restaurant killed four people and wounded 11 others in the southeastern suburb of Jisr Diyala.

Earlier, a bomb went off at a bus stop in the northeastern suburbs of the capital, killing four people and wounding nine. Another bombing near a bus stop killed three people in Baghdad's northwestern district of Shulla.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to reporters.
