PKK rebels die in clashes with Turkish army

Media reported that a series of car bombs killed at least 12 people and wounded dozens in the Iraqi cities of Ramadi and Falluja on Sunday.

According to the police, three car bomb blasts — two of them targeting police patrols — killed at least four people and wounded more than two dozen others in Falluja. Separately, at least eight people have been killed and 50 others wounded when a bomb exploded near a restaurant on a busy main street in Ramadi, 100 km west of the capital Baghdad.

Meanwhile, in the northern city of Mosul, a roadside bomb exploded on Sunday near a convoy transporting Atheel al-Nujaifi, the Governor of Nineveh province, from his home to work. Nujaifi and his staff escaped injury in the blast, but three officers were wounded. In the same city, nine people were wounded when a hand grenade was thrown into a crowd of civilians and four others were hurt when roadside bombs exploded near police and army patrols.

It is worth mentioning that these incidents followed a series of explosions at a busy market in the centre of Iraq’s southern oil hub Basra late on Saturday that killed at least 43 and wounded 185.
