A series of attacks in the Iraqi capital and to its north killed at least 12 people and wounded 47 on Thursday, security and medical officials said.
Further north, in the city of Samarra, gunmen killed two anti-Qaeda militiamen and wounded two more at a roadblock, the officials added.
Thursday's deaths brought to at least 199 the number of people killed in Iraq since June 13 -- more than were killed in all of May.
