Iraqi Guerrillas Kill 2 in Mosul - 2004-03-27

A rocket attack by insurgents in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul has killed at least two people and wounded at least 13 others.

Police say two Katyusha rockets hit the provincial governor's office Saturday. A child and two policemen were among the injured.

In the capital, a roadside bomb exploded in central Baghdad as a vehicle convoy passed by. U.S. military officials say the blast wounded at least one person.

The latest violence follows deadly clashes across Iraq Friday that left at least 13 people dead, including three people killed during gunbattles in Fallujah between guerrillas and American troops.

Hospital workers in the city, west of Baghdad, say a child was one of the victims Friday. A U.S. Marine and an Iraqi cameraman working for an American television network ABC also were killed.

A separate clash in Tikrit, Saddam Hussein's hometown, killed four Iraqi paramilitaries and three insurgents earlier Friday. In the northern Iraqi countryside, near the city of Kirkuk, police say a land-mine explosion killed two people and wounded more than a dozen others, Friday. Iraqi authorities do not think the mine was planted by insurgents, but that it had been in place since the previous regime.
