BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi security officials say a double bombing has

killed at least eight Iraqi civilians and wounded at least 28


The Monday explosions - one in a parked car and the other

planted along a road - happened in Suwayrah, 25 miles (40

kilometers) south of Baghdad.

An Iraqi Interior Ministry official said eight were killed and

28 wounded, but a police official in the nearby town of Kut said as

many as 71 were injured.

Differing casualty figures are common in the immediate aftermath

of bombings in Iraq.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were

not authorized to talk to the media.

Earlier Monday, officials said at least 10 people were killed in

attacks across the Iraqi capital targeting police and army
