BAGHDAD -- Iraqi officials say separate attacks have killed at least six people in different areas of the country.

Police say the deadliest of Sunday's attacks was in the capital's eastern New Baghdad neighborhood, where a car bomb missed a police patrol but killed three civilians and wounded 10. Another car bomb in the eastern Sadr City area killed one civilian and wounded 11.

In the town of Tarmiyah, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Baghdad, a bombing hit soldiers on patrol, killing two and wounding five.

Three medical officials confirmed causality figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

Violence has spiked in Iraq since April, with over 5,500 people killed, and al-Qaida's local branch appearing stronger than it has in years.
