BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi authorities say two bombings at a market and a commercial street have killed 10 people in Baghdad.

Police officials say a car bomb exploded Wednesday night at a commercial street in the Shiite neighborhood of Sadr city, killing seven people and wounding 15 others.

Earlier, police said a bomb blast near an outdoor market in southern Baghdad killed three people and wounded seven others.

Medics in nearby hospitals confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Iraq is facing its worst crisis since the 2011 withdrawal of U.S. troops, as the Islamic State group is in control of about a third of the country. U.S.-led airstrikes now target the militants in Iraq and in Syria.
