Three Iraqi policemen and an army captain were killed in separate bombings Thursday in the restive northern city of Mosul and in Khanaqin near the Iranian border, security officials said.

An official in Mosul, who declined to be named, said the policemen were killed when a truck primed with explosives blew up as they were searching it.

A civilian was injured in the blast, he said.

In the second attack, an army captain was killed by a roadside bomb that targetted his patrol in the mainly Kurdish city of Khanaqin, according to a local security official.
