Bomb explosions around Iraq have left at least six people, including three policemen, dead and 12 others wounded, security sources have announced.

An improvised bomb killed two policemen in the south of Baghdad overnight, a security source said on Tuesday.

The third policeman was killed in Fallujah west of Baghdad by a sticky bomb, AFP reported. Six policemen were wounded in the two explosions.

Sticky bombs in different regions outside Baghdad killed one person and wounded three other people, the unnamed source said.

In another attack, two civilian contractors for the Iraqi army were killed when their home west of Baghdad was targeted by dynamite.

Meanwhile, three other family members, including a woman, were wounded, according to medical sources.

The car bomb explosions and roadside bombs claim the lives of civilians and injure them almost on a daily basis.

There are about 47,000 US troops in the war-torn country to provide security for the people.

Over one million Iraqis have met violent deaths as a result of the 2003 invasion, according to a study conducted by the prestigious British polling group, Opinion Research Business (ORB).
