BAGHDAD May 6 (Reuters) - A car bomb killed 10 people and wounded 30 others on Wednesday when it exploded in a vegetable market in southern Baghdad, police said.

The explosion took place in the mainly Sunni Muslim neighbourhood of Doura, which was once controlled entirely by al Qaeda. Sectarian violence has dropped sharply in Iraq, but a rash of major bombings in recent weeks has raised questions about security gains. (Editing by Charles Dick)
