Terrorist attacks in Baghdad and Babel provinces killed two people and wounded others on Tuesday (October 25th), security officials told Al-Shorfa.
In Baghdad, one traffic policeman was killed and three others were wounded when an improvised explosive device (IED) blew up in the Benouk neighbourhood, north-eastern Baghdad.
"The IED was planted on the roadside of a main road in the neighbourhood and it exploded when a traffic police vehicle passed by," Baghdad police spokesperson Lt. Col. Mushtaq Talib told Al-Shorfa.
Talib accused al-Qaeda of carrying out the attack "to cause a mess, disrupt the transportation sector and wreak havoc on the capital's streets".
In Babel province, one woman was killed and her daughter was critically wounded when terrorists blew up their house in the Iskandariya area, northern Babel.
"Terrorists planted IEDs around a house belonging to a Sahwa member in the Iskandariya area to kill him with his family, and then the IEDs were detonated using a remote control device," Lt. Col. Ahmed Derham of Babel provincial police told Al-Shorfa.
Derham said the man targeted was not at the house when the explosion killed his wife and his 6-year-old daughter.
