Five people were killed and 20 wounded when a car bomb exploded in the sprawling Baghdad district of Sadr City, an interior ministry official said on Thursday.

The incident occurred overnight in the Shiite stronghold, the official said, adding that seven people had been wounded by a bomb that targeted a police vehicle in the centre of the Iraqi capital on Thursday.

The number of Iraqis killed in violence in April fell slightly month on month but was almost unchanged from 12 months ago -- 328 people died as a result of attacks last month.
