BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): At least 10 people were killed and 22 others wounded in violent attacks in Iraq on Sunday, including a suicide bombing against a military target, police said.

A suicide car bomber attacked an Iraqi army checkpoint in Suez intersection east of Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad, killing seven people and injuring 11 others, a police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Three army officers, including a battalion commander, and four soldiers were killed in the attack, while seven soldiers and four civilians were wounded, the police source said.

Earlier in the day, at least three people were killed and 11 others wounded in two violent attacks in central Iraq, a police source said.

In one of the attacks, two government-backed Sahwa paramilitary group members were killed and five others wounded when gunmen attacked their checkpoint in Abu Ghraib area, some 25 km west of Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The Sahwa militia, also known as the Awakening Council or the Sons of Iraq, consists of armed groups, including some powerful anti-U.S. Sunni insurgent groups, who turned their rifles against the al-Qaida network after the latter exercised indiscriminate killings against both Shiite and Sunni Muslim communities.

In a separate incident, a civilian was killed and six others were wounded when a roadside bomb went off in Jihad district in the southwestern of the capital, the source said.

Iraq is witnessing its worst violence in recent years. According to the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq, 8,109 Iraqis, including 952 members of Iraqi security forces, were killed in the country from January to November this year.
