At least three people were killed and 20 others wounded when a car bomb exploded Saturday in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad, police said.
The bombing occurred near a clinic in al-Bayaa in southwestern Baghdad.
Violence has escalated in the nation in recent months.
Iraqi and international leaders fear that tensions between Sunnis and Shiites could escalate and bring a return of a full-blown sectarian war.
