Insurgents in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, have car bombed two Iraqi army targets, killing at least 10 soldiers and wounding 28 other people.
Police said today's (Wednesday) first attack was at an Iraqi army base in the city center. Six soldiers were killed, ten more were wounded, and 15 civilians were also injured.
Shortly afterwards, a second car bomb exploded at an army checkpoint in southern Baghdad, killing four soldiers and wounding three others.
The attacks follow the killings Tuesday of a Kurdish judge Barwize Merwani and his lawyer son Aryan Merwani, who both worked for the Iraqi special tribunal that is trying Saddam Hussein and his closest aides.
It was not immediately clear whether their killings were linked to their work on the tribunal. But on Monday the tribunal said it had enough evidence to begin proceedings against five defendants, including Saddam's half-brother.
