BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two bomb blasts killed at least 16 people in Baghdad on Thursday in the latest large attack to hit the Iraqi capital in less than a week, hospital and police sources said.

A roadside bomb exploded near a coffee shop in the Shi'ite district of Sadr City followed by a car bomb that detonated nearby, the sources said.
