Also, a roadside bomb along a highway east of the capital, apparently targeting a police patrol, killed four civilians.
And the bodies of five apparent torture victims were found dumped in various parts of eastern Baghdad. The bodies were all blindfolded and with their legs bound.
Meanwhile, police patrols were looking for gunmen who ambushed a convoy of minibuses at a fake checkpoint, killing at least nine people and kidnapping at least 10 others. The kidnapping and killing occurred on November 11 near Al-Latifiyah, south of the capital.
