BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): At least 10 people were killed and 26 others injured on Monday in attacks in Iraq, the police said.

Six people were killed and 13 others injured when unidentified gunmen throw a grenade at worshipers when they were leaving the Sunni Ihsan Mosque in the Mansour district in western Baghdad, a police source told Xinhua.

The gunmen fled to an unknown destination after the attack, he said, adding that security forces sealed off the scene and began to search for the perpetrators of the attack.

Earlier in the day, at least two people were killed and seven injured when two car bombs went off in al-Husseiniyah district in northeastern part of Baghdad, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In a separate incident, two people were killed and six wounded in a roadside bomb explosion near a restaurant in Doura district in southern Baghdad, the source said.

On Thursday, the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq said the death toll among Iraqis from violence in April hit its highest level since 2008, with 712 people killed across the country.

Violence is still common in war-torn Iraq despite the dramatic decrease since its peak in 2006 and 2007 when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings.
