Iraqi officials say 10 people have been killed in a string of attacks targeting security forces in Baghdad. Two police officials say a suicide attacker blew himself up near a police station in western Baghdad while another targeted a police station in a northern Shiite neighbourhood.

Nine people were killed in the two bombings. In western Baghdad, a parked car bomb targeting a police patrol exploded and killed one civilian. Another roadside bomb aimed at a police patrol in western Baghdad wounded three policemen. A hospital official confirmed the causalities. The officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media.
