At least 5 killed in Baghdad bombings

Four bombings killed at least five people in central Baghdad on Thursday afternoon, police said.

Officials said several people also were wounded in the blasts, which happened near government buildings in the Iraqi capital.

Black smoke billowed over the scene, and security force helicopters hovered near the offices of the justice and foreign affairs ministries.
