Twin car bombs in Baghdad killed at least seven people and wounded at least 25 others on Tuesday, Iraqi medical officials said.

A medic at Ibn al-Nafis hospital said seven people were killed and 25 others wounded by one of two car bombs that hit central Baghdad on Tuesday afternoon.

But another official gave a higher toll, saying that the first car bomb killed five people and wounded 15, while a second a few minutes later killed seven and wounded 20.
