Attacks in Iraq kill 4 as siege in Anbar continues
BAGHDAD (AP) -- Officials say attacks in Iraq have killed at least four people as government troops continue their siege of two cities overrun by al-Qaida in western Anbar province.
Maj. Raid Emad Rasheed says a suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden truck into a police station in the northern city of Kirkuk, killing two people there and wounding 55, some critically.
A police officer says a roadside bomb struck an army patrol southeast of Baghdad, in the Madain area, killing one soldier and wounding another.
The officer says another bomb hit a patrol of pro-government, Sunni militiamen in Baghdad's southeastern suburb of Jisr Diyala, killing one fighter and wounding four.
A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. Both spoke on condition of anonymity as they are not authorized to talk to media.
