BAGHDAD, June 30 (Xinhua) -- Two people were killed and four others injured in separate bomb and gunfire attacks in central Iraq on Saturday, the police said.
In west of Baghdad, gunmen planted bombs in the house of a policeman and blew them up in the early morning hours at a village in Abu Ghraib area, some 20 km west of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, killing one of his family members and injuring a woman and a child, a local police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
The policeman himself escaped the attack unharmed as he was not at home when the attack took place, the source said.
In a separate incident, gunmen in their car opened fire from their rifles on a shop owner in central the city of Fallujah, some 50 km west of Baghdad, and shot him dead before they fled the scene, the source added.
In north of Baghdad, a roadside bomb went off in Taji area, some 20 km north of the capital, wounding two civilians, an Interior ministry source anonymously told Xinhua.
Violence and sporadic high-profile bomb attacks are still common in the Iraqi cities despite the dramatic decrease in violence since its peak in 2006 and 2007 when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings.
