BAGHDAD, June 1 (Xinhua) -- Nine people were wounded in a car bomb and a roadside bomb attacks in Baghdad on Wednesday morning, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua.

A booby-trapped car parked near al-Sa'ah Restaurant in Baghdad' s western neighborhood of Mansour, went off at about 8:30 (0530 GMT) near the convoy of Abdul-Kareem Abdullah, Deputy Minister of Iraq Ministry of Human Rights, wounding two passers-by, the source said on condition of anonymity. Abdullah escaped unharmed the powerful blast which caused severe damages to nearby buildings and shops, the source said.

In a separate incident, seven people were wounded when a roadside bomb went off in al-Nidhal Street in Baghdad's central district of Karrada, the source said.

The attacks are part of wave of attacks against Iraq's government officials and security forces during the past few months.

Such bloody wave across the country underscores the challenges that the Iraqi security forces are facing as they struggle to restore stability and normalcy in Iraqi cities about seven months before the departure of all American forces by the end of 2011.
