BAGHDAD: A car bomb exploded outside a restaurant in the town of Baquba northeast of Baghdad on Monday, killing three civilians and wounding 22, police and hospital sources said.

The car was parked in front of the restaurant when it exploded, killing three people who were passing by. Some of the wounded were in the restaurant, the police source said.

Baquba is 65 km to the north of the capital.

Earlier on Monday police found the bodies of a policeman and a member of the government-backed Al-Sahwa militia in western Baiji, 180 km north of Baghdad.

They also found the bullet-riddled body of a woman in eastern Mosul, 390 km north of the capital. Overall violence in Iraq has fallen sharply since its peak in 2006-07 but killings and bombings still occur daily.
