BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi authorities say bombings have killed 11 people in the capital Baghdad.

Police officials say the deadliest attack happened Friday morning when a bomb exploded near a market in Baghdad's northern district of Shaab, killing four people and wounding nine others.

Later on, a bomb blast at a commercial street in eastern Baghdad killed two people and wounded eight others. In downtown Baghdad, a bomb went off near car repair shops, killing two people.

Police said a bomb blast near an industrial area killed three people and wounded seven others in Baiyaa district in western Baghdad.

Medics in a nearby hospital confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
