In Baquba’s Had Moksar area, militants shot dead one member of the Awakening Council and wounded another two, the police sources told DPA.
In another incident, one Awakening Council member and another two, including an Iraqi soldier, were killed when a bomb went off in Abu Khamis area, the police told DPA.

Also in Baquba, a police officer was killed and another civilian was wounded when militants shot them in Jlolaa area.
