Six people were killed and at least 10 others were wounded in separate attacks in northern and central Iraq on Sunday, the police said.

A policeman was killed in a roadside bomb explosion near a police patrol in the Hai al-Tanak neighborhood in the western city of Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad, a provincial police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity. The source added that another policeman and a child were wounded by the blast.

In another incident, a four-year-old child was killed in a shootout incident in northern Mosul, the source said.

In Baghdad, a magnetic bomb attached to a civilian car went off near the al-Darwish intersection in the al-Elam neighborhood in southern Baghdad, killing the driver and three people, an Interior Ministry source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Also in the day, two roadside bombs went off coordinately near an Iraqi army patrol in Abu Ghraib area in western Baghdad, damaging two military Hammer vehicles and wounding four soldiers aboard, the source said.

In Iraq's eastern province of Diyala, a man and his daughter were wounded in a bomb explosion near their car while travelling in the town of Mandely, near the Iraqi-Iranian border, a source from the provincial operation command told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Also in the province, two soldiers were wounded in a bomb explosion near their vehicle in the town of Buhruz, near the capital city of Baquba, some 65 km northeast of Baghdad, the source said.

Separately, a roadside bomb struck a U.S. patrol in the city of Khalis, near Baquba, damaging one of the U.S. vehicles, the source said without giving further details.

The U.S. military has no immediate comment about the incident.

Meanwhile, the source said that the Iraqi security forces arrested 11 suspects across the province which stretches from the eastern edges of Baghdad to the Iranian border east of the country.

Sporadic attacks still common in Iraqi cities more than four months after the country held its landmark parliamentary election widely expected to shape its political landscape.
