Iraqi officials say a car bomb went off near two government offices in central Baghdad, killing at least 13 people and wounding more than 50.

Two police officials say the explosives-rigged car was parked near an office for Shiite Muslim religious affairs and the city's health department in the Bab al-Muadham area.

The Monday explosion damaged nearby buildings and cars. It occurred at about 11:00 a.m.

A doctor in a nearby hospital confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
