Bomb attacks and armed men killed six people in Iraq

Four family members - parents and two daughters aged 20-something years old - was shot dead in the head in the middle of the night by armed men, said security officials and the interior ministry.

Group of armed men were not attacking their third daughter who was only seven years old and left her, added the officials.

"It might be evil terrorists, we're checking," said the Baghdad security spokesman, Maj. Gen. Qassim Atta.

Also Sunday, a bomb mounted on the magnetic car killed two civilians and wounding one in Kirkuk, the northern provinces with diverse ethnic and religious violence-hit, said several senior police officials.

In the area west of Kirkuk, police said they found the body of a militia leader opposed to al-Qaeda who was kidnapped last week. Still not clear when he was killed.

The attacks are the latest in a series of violence is increasing again in Iraq and occurred several months after the withdrawal of U.S. troops.

Hundreds of people were killed in a wave of recent violence in Iraq, including a large number of Iraqi police, but U.S. troops continue withdrawal from that country.

Although violence is not like in 2006-2007 when the sectarian conflict raging anti-US violence accompany, some 300 people were killed every month in 2010, and July is the deadliest year since May 2008.

U.S. military forces completed the withdrawal on a large scale in late August, the announcement of the end of the combat mission in Iraq, and after the withdrawal of U.S. troops in Iraq to about 50,000. Remaining U.S. troops will be withdrawn completely by the end of this year.

Withdrawal of the last U.S. combat brigade is hailed as a symbolic moment for the existence of the controversial U.S. in Iraq, more than seven years after the invasion to uproot Saddam.

However, U.S. forces continue to conduct joint operations with Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga guerrillas in the provinces of Diyala, Nineveh and Kirkuk with joint security arrangements outside the regular U.S. military mission in Iraq.

U.S. and Iraqi officials have warned of dangers of increased attacks when negotiations on the formation of a new Iraqi government's faltering, a few months after parliamentary elections in that country.

The number of civilians killed in bombings and other violence in July rose to 396 from 204 the previous month, according to Iraqi government figures.
