Bombings and a drive-by shooting kill 8 across Iraq

BAGHDAD — Authorities say bombings and a drive-by shooting have killed eight people across Iraq.

Police officials said gunmen in a car killed two off-duty policemen near the northern city of Mosul today.

In the central Iraqi city of Tikrit, police say a roadside bomb explosion killed a father and his son.

In western Baghdad, a bomb went off near a line of car spare-part stores, killing two people and wounding seven others, officials say. In the southeast of the capital, a blast missed a police patrol but killed two civilian passers-by.

Medical officials confirmed the casualty figures for all attacks. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to talk to the media.

Iraqi has witnessed an uptick in violence during the past few months.
