Three people were killed, including an Iraqi army officer, and 15 others wounded in two attacks in Mosul City, the capital of Nineveh province, a provincial police source said on Saturday.

"A roadside bomb detonated at about 10 a.m. (0700 GMT), near a bus carrying passengers in Mosul's western neighborhood of the al-Boarsa, killing two passengers and injuring 15 others, including a mother and her daughter," Brigadier Muhammad al-Waga', deputy police chief of the province said.

Late on Friday, unknown gunmen shot dead an Iraqi army officer who was driving his car near his house in the al-Kafaat neighborhood in the northern section of the city, al-Waga' said.

Nineveh province, including its capital Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad, has been the hotbed of insurgency, sectarian and ethnic conflict since the U.S.-led invasion broke out in 2003.
