A car bomb, followed in quick succession by another explosion, killed six people and wounded 18 in central Baghdad on Wednesday as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown was in town on a visit, Iraqi police said.

Police and traffic police were among the casualties in the explosions that shook the Nahdha neighbourhood in Baghdad, near a traffic police station and a hospital, police said.

Violent attacks have dropped sharply in Iraq, where the US-led invasion in 2003 unleashed years of sectarian bloodshed and insurgent violence, but car bombs, assassinations and other attacks still occur routinely.
