Iraqi government officials say a series of explosions have rocked the western city of Ramadi, killing at least nine people.

Investigators say more than a dozen people were wounded. At least two of Thursday's blasts occurred in a market that is near government offices.

In February, a suicide bombing marred a religious ceremony in Ramadi, which is the capital of Anbar province.

Officials say 11 people were killed in that blast, which took place during a ceremony marking the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad.
