Seven die in bomb attack and shooting in Iraq
Saturday 29 June 2013
Seven people have been killed in two separate attacks in Sunni-majority areas of Iraq, officials said today.
Police said four people died and 12 others were injured when a bomb exploded in an outdoor market in the western Baghdad suburb of Abu Ghraib.
And attackers using guns fitted with silencers killed three off-duty policemen in a drive-by shooting near Fallujah, 40 miles west of the capital.
Health officials confirmed the casualties.
The new violence came a day after a series of deadly attacks that left 19 dead.
Violence has been on the rise in Iraq recently amid political and sectarian tension.
