At least five killed in Iraq attacks
A double bombing in Baghdad and a shootout in the city of Baquba killed at least five people and injured 19 others on Sunday, security sources said. Up to three people died and eight wounded, including five policemen, when a bomb targeting a patrol exploded on a through-road leading to Iraq's interior ministry, security sources at the ministry said.
As police ran to help a second bomb went off, wounding another five officers, they said, according to AFP.
Meanwhile, in Baquba, two policeman were killed and six others including a woman were wounded in a shootout, the defence ministry said.
