Baghdad: Iraqi officials say several
insurgent attacks around the country have killed seven people
and wounded 14.

Police and medical officials said today`s attacks
started when drive-by shooters killed an Iraqi army officer
driving his car in eastern Baghdad in the morning hours.

An hour later, attackers gunned down a Kurdish
politician as he was leaving his house in Iraq`s northeastern
Diyala province.

The officials say five other people, including three
policemen and an Iraqi soldier, died in three separate attacks
in and near Baghdad.

One of the attacks was by a suicide bomber who
detonated his explosive-laden belt at a bus station.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because
they are not authorized to talk to the media.
