Attacks and bombing in Iraq kill 11

World News : Attacks in Iraq, including car bombs in Baghdad, killed 11 people on Thursday, the latest in a surge of violence that has left 166 dead in a week and sparked fears of all-out sectarian conflict.

The UN has called for Iraq’s leaders to urgently hold talks to resolve wide-ranging political disputes that have been linked to the surge in unrest.

But the government’s public response has thus far been limited to speeches, a shakeup of senior security officers and announcing a series of vague new measures relating to security.

Amid all the statements and pronouncements, the violence has intensified.

On Thursday morning, a vehicle rigged with explosives went off in northeast Baghdad, killing four people and wounding a dozen more, while two more car bombs in the centre of the capital killed two and wounded 14.

Two border policemen were also ambushed along the main Iraq-Jordan highway and shot dead, while three policemen were killed in an early morning suicide car bombing in the main northern city of Mosul. Agencies
