This comes just two days after another attack claimed at least 12 lives in a busy commercial area on the outskirts of the city. STORY: Bayaa in southern Baghdad is the among the latest districts to be targeted by car bombers. The bomb was in a vehicle parked near a busy commercial street in the predominantly Shi'ite neighborhood. At least nine people were killed but police say that could rise. At least 13 more have been wounded. On Friday another busy commercial sector suffered a similar attack. The Abu Dsheer neighborhood is also in the south of Baghdad and is also mainly Shi'ite. At least 12 people lost their lives in that attack. More than 20 others were wounded. US and Iraqi authorities have accused Sunni Islamist al Qaeda militants of car and suicide bombings against civilian targets. Despite levels of violence falling to their lowest for four years there are signs of growing frustration among Iraqis after years of chaos, bloodshed and deprivation since the US-led invasion of 2003.
