Bombs in Iraq kill civilians, policeman

BLADE NEWS AND WIRE SERVICES

BAGHDAD -- Bombs struck two Sunni towns at sundown Sunday just as Iraqis were preparing to break their holy day's fast, killing 18 and wounding more than 50, officials said. Two earlier bomb blasts killed a policeman and wounded dozens of people.

The attacks showed that deadly violence is still common and in some places is worsening in Iraq, seven months after the U.S. pulled its last troops out.
