A car bomb attack near a cinema in east Baghdad on Saturday killed five people and wounded 10, security officials said.

The explosion occurred in the district of Baghdad Jadida near the Al-Bayadh cinema which now is closed.

The explosion was on the main road running through the district with shops and business establishments on both sides, a security official said.

Insurgents have stepped up attacks against markets and shopping areas in the past few weeks in a bid to inflict as many civilian casualties as possible, according to security officials.
