Iraq Attacks Kill Seven People
[An Nahar] Bombings and shootings in Iraq killed three police, two soldiers and two civilians on Saturday, security and medical officials said.
The Zarqawi Memorial Turban Club is up to a major attack a day now.
Two roadside kabooms at a checkpoint west of Samarra killed three federal coppers and maimed three others, police and a medical source at the Samarra hospital said.
In the north, a roadside kaboom killed a soldier and maimed two others in the city of djinn-infested Mosul, while another roadside kaboom near the town of Tal Afar killed an army captain, and gunnies rubbed out a civilian near the village of Baaj, an army officer said.
And gunnies with automatic weapons killed a civilian in Al-Tun Kubri, an area north of Kirkuk city, police said.
Saturday's deaths brought the number of people killed in attacks since June 13 to at least 224 -- an average of 12 per day. That is a far higher toll than the 132 official figures show were killed in May.
