BAGHDAD (AP) _ At least three people are dead in two bombings in
Iraq on Sunday.

Two people were killed and 15 wounded in the northern city of
Mosul when explosives hidden in a parked car blew up. The bomb was
apparently intended for a passing police patrol but the dead were
civilians. Five officers are among those hurt. The blast also
damaged retail shops and burned more than a dozen cars.

Farther south in Tikrit, a bomb went off inside a
police station, killing one officer and wounding two others. The
officers had found the bomb on a street and had taken it back to
the station thinking they had defused it.

In Baghdad, a roadside bomb blew up near a gas station where
people had lined up to buy fuel at the start of a new work week.
Nobody was killed, but at least three people were wounded.

The U.S. military reports some vehicle damage but no injuries
from a roadside bomb that hit a patrol in Baghdad today.

Commanders have not confirmed a report by Iraqi police that U.S.
helicopter gunships hit a truck in eastern Baghdad believed to have
been carrying a rocket launcher.
