[RxPG] Baghdad, April 5 - A civilian was killed and four others were wounded in two roadside bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital Thursday, an Interior Ministry source said.

One civilian was killed and two others were wounded when a roadside bomb detonated in the morning in Baghdad's northeastern neighbourhood of Bunouk, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Witnesses told Xinhua that the blast targeted a US patrol, but the bomb failed to explode on time.

Another roadside bomb detonated near a police patrol in the Zaafaraniya district in southern Baghdad, damaging a police vehicle and wounding two policemen aboard, the police source added.

In north of Baghdad, gunmen Wednesday kidnapped Ali al-Harbawi, head of local NGOs, local police source told Thursday.

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