Five people have been killed and dozens of others injured in a series of bombings in three cities across Iraq, a day after similar attacks left more than 30 people dead in the capital, Baghdad. Iraqi security and medical officials said on Sunday that five people were killed in the city of Fallujah -- about 69 kilometers (42 miles) west of Baghdad, the city of Sharqat -- about 290 kilometers (180 miles) northwest of the capital, and the northern city of Kirkuk. In Fallujah, an Iraqi soldier was killed and three others were wounded in a car bomb attack targeting an army patrol. A child was also killed in a roadside bomb attack in the city. Two people were also killed and 26 others injured in a car bombing near a police station in Sharqat. And in Kirkuk, a roadside bomb attack killed one person and wounded two others. The Sunday attacks in Iraq were carried out a day after an Iraqi Interior Ministry official said 32 people were killed and scores of others injured in two car bombings in northern Baghdad. HSN/PKH
