BAGHDAD - Officials say attacks in two different areas in Iraq have killed two people and wounded three.

A police officer says gunmen broke into a real estate office in Baghdad's northern Sabi al-Boor neighborhood on Tuesday, killing two and wounding two people there.

A health official confirmed the causalities. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release the information.

Meanwhile, the provincial spokesman of the northern Kurdish city of Irbil, Hamza Othman, says a bomb stuck to a car belonging to the Kurdish regional forces wounded a colonel.

Irbil is in Iraq's largely peaceful Kurdish region, 217 miles (350 kilometers) north of Baghdad. The area has generally been free of the bombings and shootings that have plagued the rest of Iraq.
