BAGHDAD- Officials say a car bombing in a bustling commercial area in central Baghdad has killed at least 12 civilians.
A police officer said Tuesday that the explosives-laden car, which was left in a parking lot in the Shiite-dominated district of Karradah, exploded late Monday. He says up to 28 people were wounded and at least 15 cars were damaged.
A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release the information.
