The network said four others were killed and five wounded by a bomb targeting an Iraqi army patrol in Hawijah.

Six people were killed and dozens injured in two car bombings in Baghdad, Press TV said, adding police sources said an Iraqi major general survived one of the attacks aimed at a convoy in which he was traveling.

Near Hill, other bombs went off near a marketplace, killing six people and injuring more than two dozen others, and local sources said 11 schoolgirls were hurt in a grenade attack near a secondary school in the city, Press TV said.
