Two bombings kill 6 in Iraq
[Al Ahram] Iraqi officials say two bombings have killed six people and maimed eight others in the center of the country on Thursday.

Police officials said that the bloodiest attack took place when a boom-mobile went off in a commercial street in western Storied Baghdad
...located along the Tigris River, founded in the 8th century, home of the Abbasid Caliphate...
, killing four people and wounding eight others. In Anbar province, two soldiers were killed after another bomb went kaboom! near their observation post in the city of Fallujah,
... the City of Mosques, which might have somthing to do with why it's not called Center of Prosperity or a really nice place to raise your kids...
65 kilometers (40 miles) west of Storied Baghdad. Medics in nearby hospitals confirmed the casualties.

All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to talk to the media. Violence has ebbed in Iraq, but thug attacks are still frequent.
