Two bombs exploded in Baghdad's upscale Mansour neighbourhood Thursday, killing 13 people and wounding at least 25, police said.

An officer at the Mansour police station, speaking on condition of anonymity out of security concerns, said two parked cars exploded one after another near a fuel station.

The blast set fire to the station, and burned several cars in the area, he said.

The officer initially put the death toll at seven, but later said that some of the wounded died.

Mansour is a primarily Sunni neighborhood in western Baghdad.
