Iraqi officials say two bomb blasts have killed at least 10 people in cities more than 100 kilometers apart from each other.

The first attack came at sunset on June 25 when a bomb exploded outside a pet store in Baqouba, northeast of Baghdad, killing at least four people and wounding several others.

Later in the city of Hilla, south of Baghdad, police said at least six people died and around 30 others were injured when a minibus blew up near a football field.
