Bombs Kill Couple, Policeman in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) - Police say bombs have killed a farming couple and
a policeman in separate attacks in northern Iraq.
A police officer says a man and his wife were killed while
working in their orchard in the Diyala province town of Sadiya.
Police believe the bomb wasn't targeting the couple but was left
behind by insurgents who long controlled the area.
Security officials also say suicide car bomb struck a patrol,
killing a policeman and wounding two others in the northern city of
Mosul.
Insurgents remain active in Diyala and Mosul despite security
gains and an overall decline in nationwide violence.
The officials spoke of Wednesday's attacks on condition of
anonymity because they're not authorized to release the
information.
