Iraqi police say a car bomb has exploded in southwestern Baghdad, killing two civilians.

Three others were wounded when the blast occurred today afternoon in the predominantly Shiite Bayaa district. A police official says the bomb-rigged car was parked on a major commercial street in the neighborhood.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Bayaa was the scene of Sunni-Shiite fighting last year when Shiite militias displaced many Sunnis.
