BAGHDAD — A series of attacks across Iraq on Tuesday killed six people, including three soldiers and a judge, police and health officials said.

A roadside bomb struck an army patrol in Baghdad's western suburb of Abu Ghraib in the early morning, killing three soldiers and wounding three others, police said.

In the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, gunmen fatally shot judge Abbas al-Abadi in a drive-by-shooting. Three policemen were wounded when a roadside bomb struck their patrol in the western part of the city, Mosul police said.

Another roadside bomb explosion killed two Kurds from the Kurdish Democratic Party as they were driving their car near the town of Tal Afar, 420 kilometers (260 miles) northeast of Baghdad.

Health officials at nearby hospitals confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

Meanwhile, a parked car bomb exploded as a mini-bus drove by it in the central town of Sulaiman Bek, wounding 10 passengers, said Brig. Gen. Sarhat Qadir.

Violence has ebbed in Iraq in the past years, but insurgent still frequently target the country's security forces and government officials in efforts to undermine the Shiite-led government.
