A car bomb exploded in an industrial area of south Baghdad Tuesday, claiming the lives of at least four people, Iraqi police said.
"The blast was caused by a parked car bomb in an industrial area," home to many car maintenance workshops and companies in Bayaa, a neighborhood with a mixed Sunni and Shiite population, a police colonel said.
He said at least four people died and 14 were wounded, a casualty toll confirmed by hospital sources.
The Iraqi capital was rocked by a wave of deadly suicide bombings during the first days of 2017 but relatively few explosions have been reported since.
