Baghdad : The death toll from car bomb explosion in central Baghdad on Monday rose to six and 12 people wounded, an Interior Ministry source said.
"The latest reports said that six people were killed and some 12 others were wounded in the car bombing of the Bab al-Sharji area in central Baghdad," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
Earlier, the source said "a car bomb parking near the Taiyran Square in Bab al-Sharji area detonated after midday, at least a civilian was killed and more than five others wounded."
The bomb also damaged several nearby civilian cars and shops, added the source.
Daily bombings continued infesting Baghdad streets despite a more-than-five-month U.S. and Iraqi security plan aiming at putting rampant violence under control.
