Baghdad (AP) At least 23 people are dead and dozens have been wounded in a pair of car bombings in Iraq's capital.

One bomb in a parked car in central Baghdad killed at least 21 people and wounded 42. In eastern Baghdad, a suicide bomber drove a mini bus at the headquarters of the interior ministry's 4th Brigade, a special quick reaction force. Two policemen were killed.

Neither of the attacks took place in parts of the sprawling city where visiting Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was located.

In an unrelated incident, the U.S. Military reported finding a grave containing 14 people, believed to be members of the Iraqi security forces. The dead are thought to have been executed by Al-Qaeda in Iraq.
