A female school principal was killed and two civilians were injured in two attacks across the Iraqi capital on Thursday, a well-informed police source said."

Su'ad Kawkez, the principal of the al-Amal High School was shot dead in the morning by gunmen in Baghdad's northern Shiite neighborhood of Kadhimiyah," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In a separate incident, two civilians were wounded when a roadside bomb targeting a police patrol went off in the Qasr al-Abiyadh neighborhood in central Baghdad in the morning, the source said.

The explosion apparently missed the police patrol and hit civilian cars and bystanders, he said.

Elsewhere, six mortar rounds struck the al-Jaza'er police station, located on the edges of Baghdad's eastern neighborhood of Sadr City, the source said.

It was unknown whether the attack caused any casualties in the police station, which houses a joint U.S. and Iraqi police force, the source added.

The attacks came after the U.S. and Iraqi officials announced a steep drop of violence in the capital as a result of a major security plan aimed at checking the insurgency and sectarian strife in Baghdad.
