One dead, six hurt in Baghdad blast

A bomb targeting a police patrol in Baghdad has killed one bystander and injured six other people, Iraqi officials said.

A police officer said two policemen were among those wounded in the attack in the Mashtal area of eastern Baghdad on Tuesday morning.

A doctor at a nearby hospital confirmed the casualties.

Violence has dropped considerably since the height of Iraq's insurgency just a few years ago, but attacks continue almost daily in Baghdad.
