Iraq violence: 6 killed
BAGHDAD: Six people were killed, including three women, in attacks in Baghdad and the northern city of Mosul on Wednesday, Iraqi police said, three days after 135 people died in massive bombings in the capital. Three women were killed and four other people wounded when a magnetic “sticky bomb” affixed to a mini-bus exploded in Baghdad’s predominantly Shiite neighbourhood of Sadr City. Earlier, this week, more than 150 people were killed in deadly strikes near the Iraqi Ministry of Justice, which is located close to the Green Zone. This was the worst attack in the past two years.
