The Associated Press

BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqi officials say a series of attacks, mainly against troops, killed 11 people in Baghdad and in the country's west.

Police officials say that in one of Wednesday's attacks, a suicide bomber drove his explosives-laden car into an army checkpoint near the town of al-Baghdadi, killing five soldiers and wounding 12. The town is located about 180 kilometers (110 miles) northwest of Baghdad.

The officials say a bomb blast at a commercial street in Baghdad's western district of Ghazaliyah killed four people and wounded eight.

Earlier, gunmen in a speeding car opened fire on an army checkpoint in Baghdad's western suburb of Abu Ghraib, killing two soldiers.

Hospital officials confirmed the causalities. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
