BAGHDAD— Iraqi officials say bomb­ings tar­get­ing a po­lice check­point, a restau­rant and two mar­kets have killed 15 peo­ple and wounded more than 40 in and around Baghdad. The dead­li­est was a sui­cide bomb­ing against a mil­i­tary check­point in Tarmiyah, about 50 kilo­me­ters north of the cap­i­tal, which killed eight peo­ple and wounded 15 others. Three of the dead were sol­diers. The two sep­a­rate at­tacks on mar­kets in Baghdad killed five peo­ple, and the bomb tar­get­ing the restau­rant killed two peo­ple. The at­tacks come as Iraqi forces are at­tempt­ing to re­take the western city of Fal­lu­jah from Is­lamic State mil­i­tants.
