A bomb exploded aboard a minibus in Baghdad on Wednesday, killing four Iraqis and wounding two, police said.

The bomb, hidden in a shopping bag, exploded as the minibus was driving from central Baghdad to Kamaliyah, an eastern neighborhood that is mostly Shiite, said police Maj. Mahir Hamad.

The four Iraqis who died and the two who were wounded were all passengers, he said.

Iraqis often pay small fares to ride privately owned minibuses around the capital, reports the AP.
