Gunmen kill four Iraqi soldiers at checkpoint in Anbar province

Unidentified gunmen shot dead four Iraqi soldiers and wounded seven more at a military checkpoint in Anbar province on Thursday, two security sources said, ONA reports citing Reuters.

The attack occurred near Garma, a town 50 km (30 miles) northwest of Baghdad, in the early hours of Thursday morning.

In a separate incident early in the day, three policemen were shot and wounded by unnamed gunmen at a security checkpoint in Jalawla, Diyala province, northeast of the capital.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for either attack.
