BAGHDAD (AP) — Authorities say that two separate bombings have killed five soldiers in a northern Iraq city.
Police officials said that the deadlier of the attacks in Mosul took place Monday afternoon when a roadside bomb struck an army convoy, killing four soldiers.
Elsewhere in the city, a suicide bomber set off his explosive belt near the motorcade of a local military intelligence officer, killing one soldier and wounding six others, police say. The intelligence officer was unhurt in the attack.
Mosul, a former al-Qaida stronghold, is 360 kilometers (225 miles) northwest of Baghdad.
