BAGHDAD (AP) — A series of bombings in Iraq has killed 14 people.

Police says the deadliest of today's attacks happened when a suicide bomber drove his explosive-laden car into the security checkpoint in the town of Dujail, killing six security force members and a civilian. Fifteen people were wounded. Dujail is 50 miles north of Baghdad.

Earlier, police said a bomb blast at an outdoor market killed four people and wounded 17 in another town north of the capital.

A third bomb exploded near a patrol of Sunni anti-al-Qaida militiamen 90 miles north of Baghdad, killing three and wounding two.

Meanwhile, a doctor at a hospital in Fallujah says army shelling yesterday killed eight civilians and three gunmen. Militants took over parts of the Anbar provincial capital of Ramadi and nearby Fallujah in December. Army and police forces have battled them for months but failed to regain control.
