Baku-APA. At least six people were killed and 30 others wounded in separate violent attacks in Iraq on Friday, police said, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

A roadside bomb exploded near a popular playground in the Gazaliya area in western Baghdad, killing five people and injuring 17 others, a police source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Also one person was killed and six others were wounded when a roadside bomb went off near some shops in the Syidiya area in southwestern Baghdad, the police source said.

Seven policemen were wounded when a roadside bomb targeted their patrol in Samurra, some 120 km north of Baghdad, he added.

Iraq is witnessing its worst eruption of violence in recent years, which raises fears that the country is sliding back to the full-blown civil conflict that peaked in 2006 and 2007, when monthly death toll sometimes exceeded 3,000.

The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq recently reported that over 1,000 Iraqis were killed and more than 2,300 wounded in acts of terrorism and violence in July, the deadliest month in more than five years.
