BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi authorities say shootings and bombings have killed eight people, including five policemen, in central Iraq.
Police officials said the deadliest of Monday's attacks occurred when a police patrol came under fire by gunmen near the city of Tikrit. Five policemen were killed in the attack.
Police said a government employee was killed after a sticky bomb attached to his car exploded in eastern Baghdad. Also, authorities said a body with gunshot wounds to the back was found near a school in western Baghdad.
In a town just south of Baghdad, police said a bomb exploded in a commercial street, killing one person and wounding eight others.
Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to journalists.
