BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- At least 22 civilians were killed and 38 other people were wounded Thursday in a Baghdad car bombing, the Iraqi Interior Ministry said.
A parked car bomb blew up near a bus station and a hospital in Shaab, a Shiite neighborhood in northeastern Baghdad.
The bombing took place around 12:40 p.m. local time (5:40 a.m. ET). Four women and three children were among the dead.
On Wednesday, a roadside bomb near a primary school in northern Iraq killed four female students, the country's Interior Ministry said.
The bomb went off in Mosul, where al Qaeda in Iraq militants have had a presence and have fought with U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces.
Along with the four fatalities, seven people were wounded.
Farther south in Baghdad on Wednesday, a bomb targeting security guards from the country's Justice Ministry wounded two guards and two bystanders.
The bombing occurred along Haifa Street, a sometimes dangerous stretch in central Baghdad. The explosive had been attached to the guards' vehicle.
