Seven killed in Iraq attacks

Shootings and bombings in Iraq, including one targeting a provincial council member, killed seven people and wounded two others yesterday, security and medical officials said.
A magnetic “sticky bomb” exploded against the car of Thanaa al-Massouli, a provincial councillor in the northern city of Mosul, killing her driver but leaving her unharmed, the officials said.
In a separate incident in the centre of Mosul, gunmen killed a policeman, while two roadside bombs left a policeman and a woman wounded in another attack in the city.
