Three Iraqis killed in shooting, bombing attacks north of Baghdad
font size    

Three people were killed, with another one kidnapped, in separate shooting and bombing attacks in Tikrit, some 170 km north of Baghdad on Tuesday morning, a local police source told Xinhua.

"Unknown gunmen showered with bullets a civilian car with three persons from one family aboard when they were heading to their work in Tikrit University, in eastern Tikrit, killing two of them and kidnapping the third," the source said on condition of anonymity.

Earlier, a roadside bomb detonated near an oil tanker in eastern Tikrit, killing its driver and destroying the tanker as well, the source added.

Violence persists in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities despite the presence of tens of thousands of U.S. and Iraqi soldiers across Iraq in a major security crackdown aimed at curbing insurgency and sectarian violence in the war-torn country.
