BAGHDAD (AP) _ Police in Iraq say at least six people are dead
after a suicide car bomb exploded at a police checkpoint guarding a
courthouse in Anbar province.
Police say the dead include three women, while more than a dozen
people were wounded in the largest attack on Ramadi in months.
The city was once a base for Sunni insurgents but has seen a
huge security improvement since many Sunni tribesmen began
partnering with U.S. forces last year.
Other scattered attacks have been reported by police around the
country, including the drive-by shooting of a police officer
southeast of Baghdad.
And the U.S. military says a sophisticated roadside bomb killed
a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi interpreter yesterday in Baghdad.
