Two roadside bombings in and around the restive northern Iraq city of Mosul and a third in Baghdad killed six Iraqi soldiers and a policeman on Wednesday. The policeman was killed around 9 a.m. by a bomb that exploded next to his patrol in western Mosul, about 225 miles (360 kilometers) northwest of Baghdad, a Ninevah provincial police official said. A second policeman was injured in the blast. A short time later, a second roadside bomb targeted an army patrol about 20 miles (35 kilometers) west of Mosul, killing a soldier and injuring two others, who later died of their wounds, the official said. Meanwhile, a roadside bomb hit an Iraqi army patrol around noon in a western area of Baghdad, killing three soldiers and wounding two others, a police officer said. Both police officers spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk with the press.
