Iraq car bomb strikes Baghdad eatery, killing 10

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraqi officials say a car bomb outside a restaurant in a primarily Shiite Muslim neighborhood in Baghdad has killed 10 and wounded 30.

The attack happened around sunset Thursday in the Shula neighborhood in northwestern Baghdad.

Police and hospital officials provided the casualty toll.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to provide the information to reporters.

The blast follows earlier bombings in and around the Iraqi capital that killed four people and wounded 16.

Violence in Iraq has fallen since the height of sectarian fighting in 2007 and 2007, but deadly attacks still happen frequently.
