String of bombings, shootings kill at least 20 across Iraq

BAGHDAD - At least 20 people were killed and 35 wounded in bombings and shootings in Iraq on Wednesday, police and medical sources said, the latest in a string of attacks that threaten to tilt the country back into all-out sectarian warfare.
Four suicide bombers targeted a police station in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, killing four policemen and wounding 15. Another attacked a police station just north of Ramadi, killing four officers and wounding seven, the sources said.
A roadside bomb targeted an Iraqi army patrol in the western city of Qaim on the Iraqi-Syrian border. One soldier was killed and another wounded, police said.
