Seven police, civilian killed in Iraq bombs, shooting

Eight people have been killed in attacks on two Iraqi police stations and a local official’s house in the western province of al-Anbar.

Seven officers and the brother of a local official were killed on Tuesday in two bombings and a shooting incident in the towns of Rawa and Aana.

Eighteen security forces have reportedly been injured in the violence.

There has been yet no claim of responsibility for the attacks, the latest in a surge of violence across Iraq.

On Monday, 15 people died in a bombing that targeted mourners in Baghdad. The event came just after another explosion that killed 12 in another funeral.

The killings came days after bombings that killed 73 in the capital and two blasts that struck a mosque in north of Baghdad in which 18 died on Friday.

The new wave of violence in the country has been the highest since 2008.

More than 610 people have been killed so far this month and over 4,400 since the beginning of 2013, according to an AFP death toll.
