Car bomb hits police in Baghdad
Source: AP

BAGHDAD - A parked car bomb struck a convoy of Iraqi police commandos and gunmen opened fire on police on a foot patrol in a mostly Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad on Saturday, police said.

The attacks came a day after gunmen stormed a senior Iraqi police officer's home northeast of the capital.

Diplomatic tensions also rose, with the Iraqi Foreign Ministry summoning the Turkish charge d'affaires and calling for an immediate halt of cross-border shelling into northern Iraq, saying such actions "undermine confidence between the two nations and negatively affect their friendship." The statement was the first government confirmation of the shelling.

The car bombing, which occurred about 9 a.m. in Baghdad's northeastern neighborhood of Shaab, killed one Interior Ministry commando and a pedestrian, while six commandos and a pedestrian were wounded, police said.

It came about 90 minutes after gunmen in a speeding car opened fire on police on a foot patrol, killing one officer and wounding another, a police officer said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he could also become a target.

(Adds details, background)

BAGHDAD, June 9 (Reuters) - Six civilian detainees were killed
and at least 50 wounded when rockets or mortars were fired into
the U.S.-run Camp Bucca prison in southern Iraq on Saturday,
the U.S. military said.

Military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Christopher Garver said
the attack involved an unspecified number of mortar rounds or
rockets fired into the prison. He gave no further details.

U.S.-run detention camps, such as the former Abu Ghraib prison
in western Baghdad, have been attacked by insurgents in the
past, but such attacks are rare.

About 16,000 detainees are held in Camp Bucca and Camp
Cropper near Baghdad.
