Four Iraqis were killed Friday (October 21st) in terrorist attacks in Kirkuk and Anbar provinces, Iraqi officials said.

In Anbar, an improvised explosive device targeted an Iraqi police vehicle on 20th street in central Ramadi, said Lt. Col. Nejim al-Dulaimi, spokesperson for Anbar provincial operations command.

"Just minutes after the first blast, another IED exploded near the scene of the first attack, targeting another police car that was on its way to the first attack scene," al-Dulaimi told Al-Shorfa.

Al-Dulaimi said the two blasts killed three Iraqis, including a policeman, and wounded two others.

In Kirkuk province, a four-year old child was killed Friday and three others were wounded when an IED exploded south of the city.

Kirkuk police chief Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qadir told Al-Shorfa that the blast targeted the Iraqi security forces in Tarkalan village, where the IED was planted at the side of a road frequently used by security forces.
