An official within the Iraqi Interior Ministry said that gunmen armed with silencers on their weapons managed to assassinate a Justice Ministry worker in Jamiyah on Tuesday as well as an Agriculture Ministry employee in Adil, both western suburbs of the capital city of Baghdad. Two soldiers were also shot and killed at a checkpoint in the eastern Baghdad suurb of Jadida and Reuters cite medical sources which have confirmed four people have been killed in Baghdad. In the village of Al-Qayara, close to the northern city of Mosul, gunmen killed a police Colonel named Abdel Monam Al-Juburi. Another person was shot in an eastern suburb of Mosul and a motorcycle bomb managed to kill one policeman whilst wounding four others in the northern city of Baiji. Another attack in Baquba, the capital of Diyala province, wounded two civilians, bringing the number of dead and wounded to seven and six respectively. The attacks on Tuesday raise the death toll in Iraq this month to at least 69, 47 of which were member of the security forces. Since the US-led invasion in 2003, Iraq’s security has dogged by severe problems. Now that the US has pulled out of Iraq the domestic security forces have been consistently targeted by militant groups, many of which have ties with Al-Qaeda and deliberately target Shi’ites
