Iraqi officials say separate car bombings in southern Iraq have killed at least 18 people and wounded dozens.

A police official says the first explosives-laden car went off around midday Sunday near government offices in the city of Samawah, while the second exploded minutes later at an open-air bus station. The Shiite-dominated city is located some 370 kilometers (230 miles) south of the capital, Baghdad.
