Iraq: Shootings, bombings kill seven in Iraq

8th May 2013

Shootings and bombings in Iraq, including one targeting a provincial council member, killed seven people and wounded two others on Tuesday, security and medical officials said.

A magnetic “sticky bomb” exploded against the car of Thanaa al-Massouli, a provincial councillor in the northern city of Mosul, killing her driver but leaving her unharmed, the officials said.

In a separate incident in the center of Mosul, gunmen killed a policeman, while two roadside bombs left a policeman and a woman wounded in another attack in the city.

Two people were killed in the Bayaa area of Baghdad by gunmen who used guns with silencers, while another group of armed men killed a police officer in Fallujah, west of Baghdad, sources said.

In another attack in Baquba, north of Baghdad, gunmen killed Ali al-Obeidi, who ran in last month’s provincial elections with premier Nouri al-Maliki’s State of Law coalition.

A policeman who was travelling in the car with Obeidi was also killed.

With the latest attacks, 71 people have been killed in violence so far this month in Iraq, more than a third of them police officials, according to AFP figures based on security and medical sources.

Attacks on Monday claimed at least 17 lives. They were killed by three bombs and a grenade attack on a mosque in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Monday, according to medics and police cited by Reuters.

April was the bloodiest month since 2008, with 712 people killed in bombings and other violence, the United Nations Iraq mission said last week. About 1,500 people have been killed this year.

Violence in Iraq has fallen from its peak at the height of the sectarian conflict in 2006 and 2007, but attacks remain common, and have killed more than 200 people in each of the first four months of this year.
