BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Guerrillas killed 10 Iraqi policemen and soldiers in attacks north of Baghdad on Monday, while the capital itself was rocked by five major explosions that left at least eight dead.

It was one of the bloodiest days in Iraq since the largely peaceful election on December 15, when rival ethnic and sectarian groups took part in a vote for a new parliament. By nightfall, at least 20 were killed and over 40 injured.

In the capital, five people were killed and 15 wounded when four car bombs exploded in quick succession as civilians travelled to work in the morning, the U.S. military said.


Further north, in the small village of Dhabab, gunmen shot dead five Iraqi army soldiers in separate, but apparently co-ordinated attacks as they left for work or went about their morning routine, the army said.

In Falluja, a suicide bomber threw grenades at police recruits outside a training centre, killing two before detonating his explosive belt and killing himself, police said.
