Deputy governor of Iraq's Nineveh province wounded in terrorist act

Two people were killed in the capital early Monday, when a mortar round slammed into a central Baghdad neighborhood and a bomb hidden in trash exploded on the city's east side, police reported.

The deputy governor of Nineveh province was wounded along with three bodyguards when their convoy was hit by a roadside bomb in Mosul, 360 kilometers (225 miles) north of Baghdad, said Hisham al-Hamdani, chief of the provincial security committee, the AP reports.

The central Baghdad mortar attack wounded six people in addition to the one fatality. In the bombing in east Baghdad, a bomb hidden in trash killed a passer-by and wounded three others. The bomb exploded 10 minutes after a roadside bomb missed its intended target, a police patrol, but wounded two civilians.
