Security incidents in Iraq, July 7

MOSUL - At least 10 mortar rounds fell in a crowded market in central Mosul near the city's provincial council headquarters. Hospital officials said three Iraqi civilians were killed and 52 injured from the blasts. A second such attack killed two civilians and wounded seven, the U.S. military said.

MASHRU - A double car bomb killed 18 people and wounded dozens late on Wednesday in Mashru, near the mainly Shi'ite city of Hilla, hospital sources said. It was the deadliest attack in Iraq for several days.

TIKRIT - Around 1,000 protesters clashed with Iraqi police outside Tikrit's police headquarters, a Reuters witness said. One policeman was killed and three protestors were injured when the crowd overran the building, a local government spokesman said. The protests were triggered by the killing of a former mayor in the town which his tribe blamed on a rival clan.

BAGHDAD - Three Baghdad barbers were shot dead by militants on Tuesday in Baghdad, a Defence ministry statement said on Thursday. Radical Islamists have killed dozens of barbers in the past year for giving clean shaves which they say is "un-Islamic".
