BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi officials say car bombings in and around Baghdad have killed at least six civilians.

A police officer said the deadliest in Sunday's attacks was in the nearby town of Mahmoudiya, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Baghdad, where a car bomb exploded, killing at least four civilians and wounding nine.

Two others were killed and 11 wounded in another car bomb explosion in Baghdad's southwestern Amil neighborhood.

Medical officials confirmed causalities. All spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

The attacks come as government forces are struggling to dislodge Islamic State militants from the western province of Anbar which they overran a year ago. On Saturday, IS militants attacked a border crossing between Iraqi and Jordan, killing four Iraqi soldiers.
