Two Iraq Bombings Kill 7, Wound 16

BAGHDAD, Aug. 7 (UPI) — Two separate insurgent bombings killed seven people in Iraq Sunday, among them a Sunni Muslim paramilitary leader, security officials said.

Police told China’s state news agency Xinhua multiple bombs were planted in the home of an unidentified leader of the Sunni Awakening Council group in the Abu Ghraib district, about 12 miles west of Baghdad.

The man was killed and two female family members were injured by the blasts, the police source said.

The Sunni group has fought al-Qaida extremists in Iraq in the past, but has also battled U.S. forces in some regions, Xinhua said.

In the town of Iskandariyah, some 35 miles south of Baghdad, a bomb killed six members of one family and injured 14 others, security officials said.

No group claimed responsibility for either of the attacks, the report said.
