The daily Iraq violence report is compiled by McClatchy Newspapers Special Correspondents in Baghdad from police, military and medical reports. This is not a comprehensive list of all violence in Iraq, much of which goes unreported. It's posted without editing as transmitted to McClatchy's Washington Bureau.


A sticky bomb planted onto a window-type air conditioner in a house in Ghazaliyah, western Baghdad exploded at 4.30 p.m. Thursday injuring three family members. The house belonged to a returning displaced family. When the security forces arrived on the scene and conducted a routine search of the neighbouring houses, they found two more sticky bombs planted in the neighbour's house. Both bombs were safely defused.


A roadside bomb targeted an Iraqi army patrol in Amin neighbourhood in central Baquba injuring one serviceman and causing severe damage to the military vehicle.
