BAGHDAD — Authorities in Iraq say a vehicle bomb targeting a street full of shoppers in a city north of Baghdad has killed 16 people and wounded 31 others.

Security officials said the pickup laden with explosives blew up Thursday evening in a commercial street of Balad Ruz, 45 miles northeast of Baghdad, destroying several shops. Health officials confirmed the security official's reported casualty toll.

In other attacks Thursday, an explosive stuck onto a public minibus exploded in Baghdad's Shaab district, killing four people and wounding six. Three soldiers were killed and five wounded in a bombing of their patrols in the northern city of Mosul, the officials said.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media.
