BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): Seven people were killed and 21 wounded in separate shootings and bombings in central Iraq, police said on Saturday.

In northern central Iraq, three policemen were killed and an officer was wounded by gunmen who opened fire on a police patrol near the city of Tuz-Khurmato, some 90 km east of Salahudin’s provincial capital city of Tikrit, a provincial police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

In a separate incident, gunmen threw a hand grenade on a crowd of people outside a grain silo in central Tikrit, some 170 km north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, killing two people and wounding four, the source said.

In downtown Baghdad, a bomb exploded late on Friday night at a popular market in al-Fadhil neighborhood, killing two people and wounding 16, an interior ministry source anonymously told Xinhua.

Violence is still common in Iraq despite a dramatic decrease since its peak in 2006 and 2007, when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings.
