BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi police say a series of attacks around Baghdad has killed eight people and wounded nearly two dozen.

The deadliest attack Saturday took place in the eastern neighborhood of al-Shaab. A police official says a sticky bomb inside a microbus killed three people and wounded seven.

In Husseiniya, a suburb of northeastern Baghdad, a police official says a roadside bomb near a crowded marketplace killed two people and wounded nine.

Two more people were killed in the southwestern neighborhood of Arab al-Jabour when a roadside bomb hit Sunni tribesmen patrolling the area.

Police say one person was killed in al-Mohshahida neighborhood when a roadside bomb hit a military checkpoint.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief journalists.
