BAGHDAD — Iraqi officials say two attacks in different parts of the country have killed five people and wounded 25.

A police officer says a parked car bomb ripped through a residential area on Wednesday in the town of Musayyib, killing three civilians and wounding 14. The town is located about 60 kilometers (40 miles) south of Baghdad.

Another police officer said a bomb targeted a restaurant in the town of Madain, killing two people and wounding 11. Madain is located about 20 kilometers (14 miles) southeast of the Iraqi capital.

Two health officials confirmed the causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.

Iraqi civilians are frequent targets for insurgents seeking to shake confidence in government efforts to maintain security.
