Sunday: 6 Iraqis Killed, 30 Wounded

At least six Iraqis were killed and 30 others were wounded in light attacks. The potential for violence remains high though, as authorities were tipped off to potential car bombs south of Mosul.

In Baghdad, a bomb killed one civilian and wounded five others in Kamaliya. Three people were wounded in a bombing in Doura. Later a suicide bomber killed one person and wounded 13 others in Adhamiya.

A bomb in Baquba wounded six people, five of them policemen.

In Mosul, a policeman was wounded in clashes with gunmen. Gunmen wounded a soldier during a drive-by shooting at his checkpoint. An electrical worker was shot dead. An off-duty policeman was also killed.

Gunmen wounded a policeman who was at a petrol station in Kirkuk.

A man was shot dead as he was enjoying a game of soccer in Husseiniyah.

Qayara and Hammam al-Aleel are under vehicle bans after receiving information on possible car bombs.

Eight suspects were arrested and an I.E.D. was defused in Basra province.

Ammunition and arms were found in Ayn al-Tamr.

A number of suspects were detained in connection with yesterday’s bombing in Sinjar.

The number of Iraqis remaining in U.S. custody dropped below the 9,000 mark. Under last year’s U.S.-Iraq security pact, the U.S. is forced to either release detainees or hand them over to the Iraq. Camp Bucca itself is expected to close next month when the last 790 detainees are removed. Camp Cropper and Camp Taji will remain open until detainees there are processed.
