Sporadic clashes in Baghdad Tuesday left two gunmen dead and six people, including civilians, wounded. The US military said at least five insurgents were killed and two Iraqi troops wounded in fighting Monday. In Anbar, a suicide car bomber attacked Iraqi security forces Monday at a checkpoint south of Rawah, killing one Iraqi soldier and wounding another, the US military said.
