Iraqi police officials say at least 10 people were killed in bomb attacks in Baghdad on May 6.

Two car bombs exploded simultaneously near a police checkpoint in the capital's Husseiniyah district.

At least five civilians and a policeman were killed in the attack in the predominantly Shi'ite area.

In the southern Dora neighborhood, a bomb went off outside a restaurant, killing at least five people.

Officials said the restaurant is frequented by police officers.

Nearly 30 people were injured in the attacks.
