No end to Iraq shootings, bombings and killings
Drive-by shootings, roadside bombings and sectarian killings left 28 dead in Iraq on Friday. American and Iraqi troops swept the oil-rich region of Kirkuk for suspected insurgents and captured dozens.
A bombing outside a Sunni Muslim mosque after Friday prayers killed at least four worshippers and wounded 15 people north-east of Baghdad in the city of Khalis, the army said.
Drive-by gunmen killed three police officers in west Baghdad and three power-station workers heading to their jobs in Taji, just north of the capital, police said.
The same story, every day; Iraq's death by a thousand cuts.
