BAGHDAD, Nov 25 (Reuters) Three bomb blasts killed at least three people and wounded 15 in Baghdad today, Iraqi police said.
A car bomb exploded near the Health Ministry in central Baghdad, killing two people and wounding seven, they said.
Separately, a roadside bomb wounded two civilians in the Waziriya district of northern Baghdad, police said. A second roadside bomb exploded when Iraqi security forces arrived on the scene, killing one soldier and wounding six others, police said.
Overall attacks have dropped sharply in Baghdad in recent months after a build-up of US troops this year.
But US commanders have cautioned that militants have not been defeated, and there has been a upsurge in attacks in the past week in Baghdad. At least 13 people were killed on Friday when a bomb exploded in a popular pet market in the capital.
