Nine people, including security members, were injured Wednesday in separate bomb attacks in eastern and central Iraq, the police said.

In Iraq's eastern province of Diyala, a roadside bomb went off near a police patrol in the city of Jalawla, some 150 km northeast of Baghdad, injuring four policemen, a provincial police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Iraqi security forces cordoned off the scene and found another roadside bomb which exploded later and wounded a police explosive expert as he was trying to defuse it, the source said.

Also in Jalawla, a boy was injured when a home-made bomb hidden in a garbage container detonated near his house, the source added.

In central Iraq, gunmen blew up a bomb planted at an under- construction medical center in Baghdad's southern district of Doura, wounding three construction workers, an Interior Ministry source anonymously told Xinhua.

Violence in Iraq has ebbed from its climax in 2006 and 2007 when sectarian conflicts pushed the country to the brink of a civil war, but sporadic shootings and bombings still occur across the country.
