BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two car bombs killed 15 people in central Baghdad on Thursday, police and medical sources said.

The blasts came hours after parliament elected a senior Kurdish lawmaker as president, a significant step in a delayed process to create a government capable of uniting the country and countering insurgents threatening to march on Baghdad.
