Gunmen ambushed an Iraqi police checkpoint south of Mosul early Wednesday, killing six policemen and wounding four, police said. The attack occurred in the Gayara area, about 55 kilometers south of Mosul, said police Brig. Abdel-Karim al-Jubouri. Several gunmen piled into four cars screeched up to the checkpoint and opened fire on the policemen, al-Jubouri said. Other scattered violence left at least four Iraqis dead Wednesday, police said, including a civilian killed by a roadside bomb on Palestine Street, a popular shopping district in the Iraqi capital. The bomb targeted a passing convoy of SUVs, and left five other people wounded, police said.
