(CNN) -- Three blasts set off by suicide bombers in cars went off in quick succession in Baghdad Sunday morning, killing at least 17 people and injuring dozens, authorities said.

In the confusion following the coordinated blasts, the casualty figures varied depending on the source.

The Interior Ministry placed the number of fatalities at 30 and said 65 others were wounded. The Baghdad Operations Command said the blasts killed 17 people and injured 141.

The blasts went off within five minutes of one another, all near embassy buildings in the capital.

Two of the explosions occurred in the Mansour neighborhood in western Baghdad -- one close to the Egyptian Embassy, the other near the Syrian Embassy and the residential complex near the Albanian Embassy.

The third car bomb exploded near the Iranian Embassy in the central part of the city.
