Police officials said that the deadlier of the two attacks took place Friday night when a bomb exploded as people left a soccer field. They said the attack in western Baghdad killed five people and wounded 15.

Earlier Friday, authorities said two soldiers were killed when a roadside bomb hit an army patrol in Mahmoudiyah, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) south of Baghdad.

Medical hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to journalists.

Violence has been rising across Iraq since a deadly crackdown by government forces on a Sunni protest camp in April.
