MOSUL, Iraq (AFP) — An Iraqi policeman was killed and 15 others, including three police, were wounded in four separate grenade attacks in the same Mosul street on Sunday, a security official told AFP.

An officer died at around 11 am (0800 GMT) when his patrol car was targeted on Al-Corniche street in the restive northern city, where attacks on security forces remain common, the official said.

Two police were hurt in a similar attack 90 minutes later and two further grenade incidents wounded a third officer and a total of 12 civilians.

Another 14 people were injured when three bombs exploded within minutes of each other in the volatile city of Baquba north-east of Baghdad, a city security official said.

The first blast targeted a CD shop, the second an army patrol and the third exploded as police arrived on the scene, the official said. Five suspects are being questioned.
