Insurgent attacks kill 4 across Iraq

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iraqi officials say insurgent attacks have killed four people across the country, according to The Associated Press.

Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qadir, who is the police commander of Kirkuk, says three people including two soldiers died and 22 others were wounded Monday in three attacks — two car bombings and a shooting at a checkpoint - in and around the city.

Kirkuk, 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Baghdad, is home to a combustible mix of Kurds, Sunni Arabs and Turkomen who all claim rights to the city.

In Baghdad, a police officer said gunmen staged a drive-by shooting against a civilian car in a southern suburb, killing an army officer and wounding three others. A medical official confirmed the causalities.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
