Round-up of daily Violence in Iraq - Friday 1 September, 2010

A roadside bomb targeted a Sahwa checkpoint near Sa'doun Mosque in Dora neighbourhood, south Baghdad, at 12 p.m. - the time for Friday prayers. The explosion killed one Sahwa member and two worshippers and injured two Sahwa members and five worshippers. Four home made bombs went off in Ishreen Street, the main commercial street in Bayaa neighbourhood, southwest Baghdad, Thursday morning. Police authorities said that this was to draw the attention of the security forces while a gang of more than ten people robbed a nearby bank. However, the guards at the bank shuttered the bank entrance as soon as the first explosion went off. And armed confrontations between the armed men and the security force ensued, in which two policemen were killed and three civilians were injured.
