Last Throes of the Week...

The BBC reports:

About 20 insurgents attacked the police officers as they patrolled a main road on the outskirts of the city, said a local police chief.

[and]

On Friday, a suicide bomber attacked a US military convoy near Falluja, killing up to six military personnel and wounding 13. Two marines were confirmed dead. Three more marines and a sailor were listed as missing, the US military said. One of the confirmed dead and 11 of the wounded were female marines, the military said.

...and more, via Bangladesh's The New Nation:

Bomb attacks in northern Iraq killed at least 30 people and wounded 88, as the autonomous Kurdish region installed Massoud Barzani as its first president.

[and]

"Ten people were killed in all and seven wounded," an Iraqi army officer said, adding four deaths among his own soldiers to an earlier report of six dead and four wounded.
