15 Shia Soldiers Killed and 15 Wounded

Gunmen killed 10 Iraqi Shia soldiers in two separate attacks on Saturday in Diyala province northeast of the capital Baghdad, a military source said.

In the first attack, five soldiers were killed and 15 wounded when gunmen assaulted a military checkpoint north of the provincial capital of Baquba, the source said. Elsewhere north of Baquba, five members of a Shia militia allied to the army were killed when gunmen attacked one of their positions.
