Two roadside bombs exploded in Ghazaliyah neighbourhood, western Baghdad, Monday. The first targeted an Iraqi army patrol injuring one civilian, and as soon as people gathered around to offer what aid they could, another bomb exploded killing three servicemen and injuring 28 people including army servicemen, policemen and civilians.

A magnetic bomb stuck to a civilian car detonated in Adhamiyah neighbourhood, northern Baghdad, Sunday evening, injuring two civilians who were in the car.


A suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt drove a booby trapped tanker truck, usually used for transporting water into the police outpost in Area 35, on the international highway, to the north of Ramadi at 2 p.m. Monday, killing six police officers and injuring eight others. The toll may rise because several of the injured are critical, said Iraqi police.

Gunmen booby trapped and blew up the house of an intelligence employee, Mohammed Khudhaiyir, in Saqlawiyah, 15 km to the north of Fallujah before dawn, Monday. The explosion destroyed the house but caused no human casualties because the family had recently received threats and moved to live with relatives.


A roadside bomb targeted a police patrol in al Hammam Square in eastern Mosul, Monday afternoon, killing two police officers and injuring two others.

One elderly, disabled, retired policeman was shot and killed by gunmen in Khadhraa neighbourhood, eastern Mosul, Monday.
