BAGHDAD (AP) -- Authorities in Iraq say bombings and a shooting have killed nine people around the capital, Baghdad.

Police officials say the first attack took place Friday morning when a bomb exploded near a market in Baghdad's northeastern suburb of Husseiniyah, killing four people and wounding nine others.

Just north of Baghdad, a bomb blast targeting an outdoor market killed three people and wounded 12 others in the Sabaa al-Bour area.

Also, gunmen in a speeding car sprayed an army checkpoint with bullets, killing two soldiers and wounding two others in in the town of Tarmiyah, 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Baghdad.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren't authorized to release the information.
