BAGHDAD, April 23 (UPI) -- Seven people were killed and at least 10 wounded in a series of bomb blasts in western Iraq's Anbar province, officials said.

The coordinated attacks targeting police and judicial buildings occurred in Khaldiya, around 15 miles east of Ramadi, BBC News reports.

The region west of Baghdad isn't as volatile as it used to be but small-scale bombings still threaten local authorities.

The attacks come a few days after three senior al-Qaida members were killed by Iraqi and U.S. forces, in a development U.S. officials have lauded a key success in the fight against the insurgency in Iraq.
