A bomb attack in Iraq's northern Nineveh province killed three US soldiers hours after a bomb ripped through a council office in Baghdad killing four Americans, the US military said yesterday.

The three soldiers and their interpreter were killed at 10:45 pm (1945 GMT) on Tuesday, the military said without giving further details nor specifying where the attack occurred in the province.

In a separate attack in Nineveh, a car bomb exploded in the provincial capital of Mosul on Tuesday wounding 90 civilians, the military said.

It blamed al-Qaeda in Iraq operatives for the attack in Mosul city, which the military claims is the last urban bastion of the jihadist group.
