"Two IEDs (improvised explosive devices) placed on the side road of al-Hussaniyah area of northeastern Baghdad successively exploded to result in killing two civilians and injuring 10 others," an unnamed security official told IraqiNews.com.

"A security force hurried to the explosion scene and started to transfer the injured to the nearby hospital for treatment and the corpses to the morgue," the official said.
