12 dead after two attacks in Iraq


Twelve people were killed in two separate attacks targeting a government complex and a police building in Iraq yesterday, police and medics said. No group immediately claimed responsibility, but Sunni Muslim insurgents have regularly hit targets linked to the Shi'ite-led government and security services since the beginning of this year.

Contextual targeting label: 
Local government
