The attack, which appeared to be the latest incident in a wave of violence by Sunni insurgents against the Shi’ite-led government, took place near the city of Ramadi, 100 kilometers west of Baghdad. Most of the victims were soldiers.
In an attack southeast of Baghdad, gunmen fatally shot three government-backed militiamen and wounded another two in Madaen, 30 kilometers from the capital.
In the northern city of Mosul, gunmen attacked a military checkpoint and shot dead two soldiers. Another group of gunmen shot dead two women in the west of the city and a Sunni sheik was killed by a bomb planted on his car, police said.
