BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two car bombs exploded near an entrance to Baghdad's fortified Green Zone Monday, killing three people and wounding at least 10 others, an Interior Ministry source said.

The source said the blasts occurred near a security checkpoint at the western entry to the Green Zone, which hosts government buildings and foreign embassies in central Baghdad.
