Three attacks, all apparently targeting Iraqi security forces, killed at least 17 people and wounded more than 50 on Wednesday, officials said.

In the deadliest attack, 13 people were killed when a car bomb exploded in front of a restaurant frequented by security officers in the town of Medhatiyah, south of Baghdad, according to Babil province deputy governor Sadiq Rasul al-Mohannah.
