Two roadside bombs exploded in a crowd of part time labourers in central Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least two people and wounding 17, police said.

Police sources said the death toll from the bombs, which struck the packed crowd in northeastern Baghdad's Palestine Street, was likely to rise.

Despite violence being at its lowest ebb since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, militants have shown themselves repeatedly capable of carrying out coordinated, lethal attacks.

On Monday, a triple bomb attack killed 28 people and wounded 68 in central Baghdad.
