At least four police officers were killed when gunmen ambushed their car in eastern Baghdad.

In a separate attack in eastern Baghdad, at least one officer was killed and another wounded.

In a third attack in south Baghdad, gunmen shot dead one police officer.

Insurgents are regularly targeting Iraqi security forces in their bid to destabilize the country.
