In Madain, south of Baghdad, a bomb exploded near a football field inside a sports club, killing at least five people. An anti-Al Qaeda fighter was killed by a magnetic "sticky bomb" near Baquba, 65 km northeast of Baghdad. Gunmen attacked a checkpoint on a highway in northern Iraq, sparking clashes that killed three pro-government militia fighters and two militants.
Violence has surged in Iraq since the beginning of this year after the minority Sunni launched numerous protests against the Shiite-led government, stating that the ruling government has implemented isolating and discriminating policies. The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) reported 761 people were killed and over 1,771 wounded in clashes across Iraq in June.
