[RxPG] Baghdad, April 18 - Ten people were killed and twelve others wounded in a car bomb explosion near a private hospital in central Baghdad Wednesday, an Interior Ministry source said.

'A car bomb ripped through a main road near the Abdul Majid private hospital in Karradah district, killing ten people and wounding twelve others,' the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

'A suicide bomber driving a explosive-borne car hit a police patrol around midday in Uwairij area in southern Baghdad, killing two policemen and wounding two others,' the source said.

Two more civilians were wounded in the attack, he added.

In a separate incident, an explosive charge detonated inside KIA mini-van at the Amin intersection near the commercial area of Shorjah in central Baghdad, killing two civilians and wounding five others, the source said.

In another incident earlier, US troops raided an area near the city of Fallujah Wednesday morning, killing five insurgents, injuring four and detaining 26 suspects, the US military said.

The US troops raided a group of buildings known to be used by 'terrorists' in the rural area of Karmah and found explosive materials in one of the buildings, the military said in a statement.

According to the statement, a US helicopter gunship was called in and dropped precision-guided munitions to strike the contents of a building.

'During the operation, coalition forces were engaged by a group of armed men and returned fire in self-defence, killing five and wounding four,' the statement said.

Violence persists in Baghdad despite the presence of tens of thousands of US and Iraqi soldiers across the capital in a major security crackdown aimed at curbing insurgency and sectarian violence in the war-torn country.
