BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi authorities say bombings near the homes of government employees have killed three people in a Sunni suburb west of Baghdad.

Police officials say a bomb went off Monday near the house of a local municipal official in Abu Ghraib, killing two of his neighbors and wounding four others. Also in Abu Ghraib, one person was killed and five others were wounded when a bomb exploded near the house of a Health Ministry employee.

In a rare attack in the relatively peaceful self-ruled Kurdish region, two senior security officers were wounded when two sticky bombs attached to their cars exploded near Sulaimaniyah city, said police officials.

Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to media
