Bombings in Iraq Kill 6


Three bombings in northern Iraq killed six people Saturday, including one child.

In one attack, police say a roadside bomb exploded about 80 kilometers south of Mosul, killing two police officers and one soldier.

In a second attack, a roadside bomb targeting an Iraqi army patrol exploded about 25 kilometers south of Mosul, killing the child and one soldier.

The third bombing took place in Fallujah, about 50 kilometers west of Baghdad. Police say two bombs exploded near the home of a former police officer, killing a woman.

Insurgent attacks remain common in some areas of Iraq, although such violence has dropped significantly since reaching its highest levels between 2005 to 2007.
