Al Jazeera, Baghdad, 17 Sep 2012 - A suicide car bomber has killed four Iraqis and wounded 11 others close to an entrance to Baghdad’s heavily guarded Green Zone, three police sources say.

The blast on Monday took place in the morning rush near Baghdad’s July 14th suspension bridge which leads into the area, which houses many government offices and diplomatic missions including the US embassy.

Two of the four killed were soldiers, the sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said.

The last attacks in the Iraqi capital occurred on September 9 when a series of bombs in mainly Shia Muslim districts ended one of the bloodiest days of the year, on which more than 100 killed across the country.
