BAGHDAD, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Two car bombings in Iraq killed three people, including a U.S. soldier in the city of Tuz and two civilians in Mosul, CNN reported Wednesday.
The unidentified soldier was killed by a roadside bomb in a vehicle, while the Mosul blast took place when a bomb-laden vehicle approached a public square and exploded. At least 14 others were wounded in that blast.
Outside Kirkuk, two people were killed and one wounded when their vehicles came under rocket-propelled grenade fire, police said, while in Baqubah, officials said a roadside bomb targeting an Iraqi army patrol injured three civilians, including an 11-year-old child.
"Insurgents continue to disregard the safety of their fellow citizens during their attacks," the U.S. military said in a statement, adding they had "killed two and injured 20 Iraqi citizens during attacks in the last three days."
The number of U.S. troops killed in the Iraq war reached 1,483 Wednesday.
