BAGHDAD, June 11 (Xinhua) -- Car bomb and roadside bomb explosions hit Iraq's eastern province of Diyala and capital city of Baghdad Friday, killing 5 and wounding 24, a local police source said.

A suicide car bomber hit a Iraq and U.S. joint patrol team in Jalwlaa town, 90 km northeast of Baquba, the capital of Diyala province, killing 3 and wounding 15 others, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity. Police and security forces quickly sealed off the blast site.

In the capital city of Baghdad, a roadside bomb explosion in a market killed two people and injured nine, according to the sources.

Sporadic attacks and waves of violence continue across Iraq three months after the country held its landmark parliamentary election on March 7, which is widely expected to shape the political landscape of the war-torn country.
