One policeman killed, 10 injured in blasts west of Baghdad
One policeman was killed and 10 people injured in two consecutive blasts in Falluja city, Iraqi police sources said on Friday, DPA reported.
Seven civilians were injured when an explosive device went off at midnight near a policeman's house in al-Golan neighbourhood, in Falluja, located some 60 kilometres west of Baghdad.
Another blast took place shortly after police arrived at the scene, killing one policeman and injuring three others, sources added.
Security forces have increasingly been coming under attack from insurgents in recent months, as the US military has now reduced its presence in Iraq to under 50,000 soldiers. All soldiers are scheduled to leave Iraq by the end of 2011.
