of Shurta killed two people and wounded four, an official at
the interior ministry said.
In the town of Al-Garma, in Anbar province around 50
kilometres west of Baghdad, a bomb destroyed a policeman's
house, killing three of his relatives, including a woman, and
wounding three others, two of them women, according to the
Data released by the Iraqi ministries of the interior,
health and defence on Saturday showed that July was the single
deadliest month in the war-torn country since May 2008, with
535 people killed and 1,043 wounded.
