BAGHDAD  — Iraqi police officials said two soldiers and a member of a government-backed Sunni militia were killed Thursday in attacks in Baghdad and the north.

A member of an anti-Al-Qaida Awakening Council died when a roadside bomb exploded next to his patrol in southwestern Baghdad.

In the west of the city, a soldier was also killed when a roadside bomb hit his patrol, police said.

In the northern city of Kirkuk, an Iraqi army officer was killed in a drive-by shooting while he was walking on the street in civilian clothes late Wednesday.
