(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) About 50 people were killed and 80 others were injured in a series of deadly attacks that hit several areas in Iraq yesterday, police officials said. In one of Friday's incidents, an explosive-laden tanker was driven into the federal police headquarters in the village of Injanah, 55km north of Baquba, killing 12 people and wounding five, including the head of the federal police, Brigadier General Raghib al-Umairi, and his assistant. In Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, an attack killed 10 people and injured 27. A suicide bomber blew himself up at a funeral inside a mosque. Anbar has been the scene of protracted fighting between anti-government fighters and security forces, leading to months of bloodshed and the internal displacement of hundreds of thousands of people. In the Sarha region of Salaheddin, clashes early on Friday led to a series of explosions, including one near an army base, that killed 12 people and injured 13. In separate incidents, police said gunmen opened fire on an army checkpoint near the city of Samarra, killing two people, while car bombings killed nine and injured 25 in Dibis, a town located near Kirkuk. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks
