Iraqi officials say a roadside bomb has exploded near a French embassy convoy in Baghdad, wounding seven people in one of several attacks Monday in the capital.

The officials said four Iraqi security guards and three civilians were wounded in the blast in the central part of the city.

In the northern Shaab district, authorities say a car bomb killed one person and wounded four others.

Meanwhile, in southern Baghdad, police say gunmen using silenced weapons shot and killed a policeman.

Violence in Iraq has eased since the height of sectarian clashes in 2006 and 2007, but attacks including roadside bombings remain common.
