Iraqi police say a car bomb has killed 17 people and wounded about 40 at a Baghdad produce market.

Hours later, another car-bomb attack in the Iraqi capital killed two people and wounded six others. Authorities say the bomb apparently targeted a police patrol, but missed.

The blasts follow a sharp rise in attacks in Iraq last month. April was also the deadliest month for U.S. troops in Iraq since September 2008 with 18 reported deaths.
