"At least six people have been killed and 35 others wounded in two separate attacks in Baghdad"

In the first of Wednesday's two attacks, three policemen and one civilian were killed when a parked car bomb exploded near a bus station in Baghdad's southern Bayaa neighbourhood.

A second bomb targeting police and rescue services arriving at the blast site detonated minutes later.

There were no reports on casualties from the second blast.

In the second attack, which occurred in the Sheikh Omar neighbourhood of eastern Baghdad, two bombs near a bus station went off simultaneously, killing two civilians and wounding 12 others.

Health officials confirmed the death toll of the Sheikh Omar blast.

The bombs appeared to target a police patrol, the sources said, and Iraqi police and soldiers were among the dead and wounded.

The attack came a day after an Iraqi soldier reportedly fired a barrage of bullets at US troops protecting one of their commanders during a visit to an Iraqi army base and killed two of them.

Nine Americans were wounded in Tuesday's shooting."

"Gunmen on Wednesday killed an Iraqi TV journalist, the second to be slain in Iraq in as many day"

highlighting the dangers media workers continue to face in the country seven years after the U.S.-led invasion, while a number of foreign correspondents were killed in the years immediately following the invasion, Iraqi journalists are now the main target, especially photographers and TV journalists who are easier to spot, according to a Reporters Without Borders, a Paris-based media watchdog.

The Tuesday release of a report by the group entitled "The Iraq War: A Heavy Death Toll for the Media" coincided with the killing of Riyad Assariyeh, an anchor at state-run Iraqiya TV.
Assariyah also served on Baghdad's Provincial Council. He was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in a western Baghdad neighborhood.

In the northern city of Mosul, Safaa Abdul-Hameed, a correspondent for a local TV station, was killed Wednesday morning near his home in the eastern part of the city. The gunmen shot him from a speeding car, police said.

Hameed, a father of six, has worked at al-Mousiliyah channel for a year, his colleagues said.
At least 230 media workers have been killed in Iraq since 2003"

"Iraqis are traumatized. Every day there are assassinations with silenced pistols and the small magnetic car bombs known as sticky bombs"

People in the region remember -- even if the West has forgotten -- the seven years of chaos, violence, and terror. To them, this is what Iraq symbolizes. Thanks to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other failed U.S. policies in the broader Middle East, the United States has lost most of its influence on Arab people, even if it can still exert pressure on some Arab regimes."
