BAGHDAD — Attacks across Iraq, including a suicide bombing targeting soldiers on patrol and a drive-by shooting, killed at least 14 people Sunday, officials said.

The day's deadliest attack happened in the northern city of Mosul, where a suicide bomber attacked an army patrol, killing four officers and four soldiers, authorities said. The attack also wounded nine soldiers and four civilians, officials said.

Mosul is 225 miles northwest of the capital, Baghdad.

In Baghdad, gunmen in a speeding car opened fire at a checkpoint run by anti-al-Qaida, pro-government Sunni militiamen in Baghdad's western suburb of Abu Ghraib, killing four and wounding three, a police officer said.

The Sunni militia, known as the Awakening Council, was formed by the U.S. forces during the height of the insurgency. They are seen as traitors by al-Qaida local branch and other militant groups.

Meanwhile, a bombing at an outdoor market in the capital's western Jihad neighborhood killed two civilians and wounded eight, the officer said.

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