BAGHDAD (AP) - With one week to go before the deadline for all U.S. combat troops to be out of Iraq, there's been a new series of bombing attacks in the capital.
Police say three people were killed and 20 others were hurt.
After the drawdown, there will be just 50,000 U.S. troops remaining in Iraq -- amid fears that Iraqi troops won't be able to handle security on their own.
Baghdad police said unknown attackers in a speeding car threw a grenade in the mixed Sunni-Shiite neighborhood of New Baghdad in the capital's east.
The blast killed one policeman and wounded another.
Late yesterday, a grenade attack on an Iraqi army checkpoint in a Sunni area in western Baghdad killed one soldier and injured 2 others. A bomb at a popular cafe in the capital's southwest killed one person and wounded 15 people.
