A suicide bomber blew up a car in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Monday killing a policeman and a civilian, as two soldiers were killed near Baghdad, security and medical officials said.

A total of 37 people were wounded in the attacks, the first of which struck around 2 pm (1100 GMT) in the centre of Mosul, 350 kilometres (220 miles) north of the capital.

"Two people were killed, a policeman and a civilian, and 22 people wounded, including five police, when a suicide car bomber targeted their patrol," Mosul police Major Hussam Aldeen Mohammed said.

Dr Abdul Latif al-Juburi, from Medical City Hospital in Mosul, confirmed the casualties.
