Gunmen Kill 5 in Mosul Shootings


Iraqi police say gunmen have killed two police officers, one soldier, a grandmother and her grandchild, in a series of attacks in the restive northern city of Mosul.

Police say the three security officers died as assailants carried out drive-by shootings on multiple checkpoints in the city.

In a separate incident, unknown gunmen stormed a house in western Mosul, killing a woman and her young grandchild, who was about 2 or 3 years old. Police did not provide further details about that attack.

Elsewhere in Iraq, authorities say at least six people were wounded in a car bombing in the capital Sunday. They say the bomb blast occurred in eastern Baghdad's Shi'ite Baladiyat district.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and Reuters.
