— Iraqi officials said insurgent attacks in separate parts of the country have killed four people including a 7-year-old boy and wounded five others.

Police officials said that the first attack took place early Sunday when gunmen attacked an army checkpoint near the city of Samarra north of Baghdad, killing three soldiers and wounding two others.

In the western province of Anbar, police said a roadside bomb went off on a security patrol in the city of Fallujah, killing the boy who was walking near the patrol. Three policemen were wounded also in the attack.

Medics in nearby hospitals confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to media.

Violence has ebbed in Iraq, but insurgent attacks are still frequent.
