Militants Kills At Least Nine In Iraq

Militants in Iraq have killed at least nine people in attacks targeting commercial areas and security forces.

In the deadliest attack June 2, a suicide attacker killed three soldiers in Tarmiyah, just north of the capital.

South of Baghdad, a roadside bomb near a secondary school in Mahmudiyah killed a male pupil, and a car bomb near a Shi'ite mosque in Iskandiriyah killed two people.

Another three separate bomb blasts in Salaheddin Province killed two soldiers and wounded three people, while bombings in Najaf and Dhi Qar provinces killed one person and wounded 36.

The violence comes a day after fighting between Iraqi security forces and Al-Qaeda-linked insurgents in western Anbar Province left at least 22 dead.

The clashes on June 1 in and around Fallujah also injured 36 people.
