At least nine people, including an army officer, have lost their lives and 16 others have been wounded in separate attacks in different parts of Iraq.

Gunmen killed six women, aged between 20 and 40, and a man in the northern city of Mosul, medical sources confirmed on Monday.

The incident happened when unidentified gunmen entered a house in the impoverished neighborhood of al-Tanak in Mosul.

Iraqi security forces sealed off the scene and launched an investigation into the assault.

In a bombing attack on Monday, an army officer and police officer were killed in the city of Mussayib, 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of Baghdad, a police chief told AFP.

He added that 16 people were also wounded, among them three soldiers and two police officers, by roadside bombs in Mussayib and in different parts of Baghdad.

According to Opinion Research Business, since the 2003 invasion, more than one million civilians have lost their lives and about five million children have been orphaned.
