BAGHDAD: Iraqi authorities say two separate bombings north of Baghdad have killed at least four people.

Police officials say a bomb went off Saturday afternoon inside an outdoor market in the northern city of Mosul, killing two shoppers and wounding 15 others.

One hour later, police said two people were killed and seven others were wounded when a roadside bomb exploded on a road frequently used by military convoys in Mishahda village, just north of the capital.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to media.

Today's attacks bring the death toll in Iraq this month to at least 74, according to an Associated Press count. Many deaths may go unreported.
