BAGHDAD — Officials said Wednesday that a string of attacks targeting Iraqi security force left 13 people dead.

Police and hospital officials said the deadliest attack occurred in northern Baghdad when a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden car in a parking lot behind a police station, killing 11 people, including four policemen and seven civilians. Twenty-one people were wounded in the attack.

Officials say two more policemen also were killed Wednesday, one in a car bombing in the northern city of Kirkuk and another in a drive-by shooting in western Baghdad.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The attacks come as the US ends combat operations in Iraq.
