One gunman was killed and two others were wounded when an improvised explosive device the suspects were trying to plant near Mosul University exploded Tuesday (November 6th), the Iraqi police in Ninawa province said.

"The police managed to arrest the two wounded gunmen and transferred them to a private hospital under heavy guard," police spokesperson Col. Khalid al-Hamdani told Al-Shorfa. "Meanwhile, the police identified the gunman who was killed -- a wanted terrorist and al-Qaeda member."

No citizens or security forces were killed as the street was empty at the time of explosion, al-Hamdani said.
