Iraqi officials say bombings in and around Baghdad have killed at least nine people and wounded 28.

Police officials say a parked car bomb exploded at an outdoor market in Baghdad's central Sadriyah neighborhood Monday, killing four people and wounding 11.

They say another bomb went off near a bus station in the nearby al-Nahda area, killing three people and wounding seven.

A car bomb in a parking lot in the southeastern Bayaa neighborhood and a bomb in the eastern suburb of Hussainiyah killed two civilians and wounded 10.

Medical officials confirmed the figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media.

At least 233 people have died in attacks across Iraq so far this month, according to an Associated Press count.
