BAGHDAD, March 3 (UPI) -- Two bombs exploded in northern Baghdad Sunday, killing at least two people people and injuring 10 others, officials said.

"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.

In a separate incident, a bomb was detonated at a construction site between two holy shrines in central Karbala, IraqiNews.com reported.

"The IED exploded at the workplace of a development project in the area," Karbala Police Col. Ahmed Mohamed Umran said.

Umran said security forces were at the scene of the explosion, but he did not say whether there were any casualties.
