Seven people were killed and 18 wounded when a bomb exploded in the depot in the eastern Baghdad neighbourhood of Al-Mashda, the officials said.
In a similar attack, four people were killed and eight wounded when a roadside bomb went off in Al-Qahira in the north of the capital, they said.
One person was killed and seven wounded when a bomb planted in their car, part of a government convoy, exploded in the central Karrada district.
A civilian was killed and five wounded when a bomb blew up in a car near the University of Technology in Baghdad, the security officials said.
In another attack, a policeman was killed and three others wounded when they were shot at by gunmen driving in a vehicle in the the southeastern Baghdad district of Al-Gadhir.
An Iraqi police major was also wounded along with his two sons when a bomb planted in their car exploded in Al-Wahda in the centre of the capital.
