At least four civilians have been killed and five others, including three policemen, wounded in separate attacks across Iraqi cities, police have said.

Three women were killed after gunmen stormed a house in the northern city of Kirkuk late Monday.

Two of the victims were sisters -- a teacher and a lawyer -- and the third woman was a relative, Col. Sherzad Mofaly was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.

In a bomb explosion on Tuesday, senior Education Ministry official, Abdul-Amir Hussein, was killed in Baghdad, police and hospital officials said.

Hussein died when he was headed to work in the neighborhood of Dora in southern Baghdad.

In another incident, three policemen and two bystanders were wounded by a roadside bomb in Baghdad on Tuesday. The bomb was planted near a security checkpoint outside Iraq's Finance Ministry.

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