13 dead, 22 others wounded in Iraq bombings, officials say

Two bombings in eastern Iraq on Wednesday left at least 13 people dead and 22 others wounded, police officials said.
In one incident, a hidden bomb left inside a popular coffee shop in al-Mafraq -- just west of Baquba -- killed nine people and wounded 12 others.
Separately, a roadside bomb in central Baquba killed four people and wounded 10 others, the officials said.
Baquba is located about 60 kilometers (roughly 40 miles) northeast of Baghdad.
