Police say that in a third attack, gunmen fired at a van carrying oil workers, killing one and wounding three.

A health official confirmed the casualty figures. The health official and two police officers spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to release the information.

Violence has dropped in Iraq since the country's worst sectarian fighting in 2006-2007, but insurgents carry out near-daily attacks on security forces and civilians to try to undermine the Shiite-led government.
