BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two suicide car bombers and a car bomb hit police in separate districts of the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least 14 people and wounding around 60, interior ministry and police sources said.

The bombings underscored the ability of insurgents to hit multiple targets in the capital despite security improvements and a fall in overall violence in Iraq as the last U.S. troops prepare to withdraw by the end of this year.
