As a minimum 17 civilians and infantrymen have been killed in automobile and roadside bomb assaults across Iraq on Wednesday, police and medics said. No team claimed accountability for any of the assaults, however Sunni Islamists and other insurgents have been regaining ground in a violent marketing campaign to destabilize Iraq’s Shi’ite-led executive. withIn the deadliest incident, six infantrymen were killed when a roadside bomb exploded close to their patrol in the town of Mussayab, 60 km (forty miles) south of Baghdad, police and medical sources said. A mortar assault in the same city killed one civilian, police mentioned.
