Iraq police and gunmen die in Mosul clashes
Deadly clashes have broken out in numerous areas since Tuesday when the Hawija protests camp was cleared, BBC reported.
At least 10 policemen and 30 gunmen have died in clashes in Mosul as anti-government protests continue in Iraq's Sunni-dominated areas.
Sunni protests erupted on Tuesday when the army raided an anti-government protest camp in Hawija, near Kirkuk.
Earlier, anti-government gunmen seized the Sunni town of Suleiman Beg after clashes with Iraqi security forces.
Iraq's Defence Ministry said a police station was taken over by the gunmen, who have deployed in the streets.
Thursday's fighting followed fierce clashes in the town on Wednesday, which led to the deaths of four soldiers and 12 others.
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has called for calm, urging Iraqis to stand up against extremists.
"If [sectarian] conflict erupts, there will be no winner or loser," said Mr Maliki in a televised address. "All will lose, whether in southern or northern or western or eastern Iraq."
