Insurgents Kill 18 People in Iraq

Thursday June 24, 2004 7:01 AM

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Insurgents launched a series of attacks on police stations across Iraq's ``Sunni triangle'' Thursday, killing at least 18 people and wounding 13, officials said.

The attacks began at dawn in the western Iraqi cities of Ramadi and Baqouba. Explosions also rocked the eastern side of the restive city of Sunni-Muslim city of Fallujah, witnesses said.

The cities are part of the so-called Sunni triangle, which has been the site of frequent clashes between U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces battling insurgents. Authorities have warned that attacks on security forces would increase in the days leading to the June 30 handover of power.

Insurgents fired rocket-propelled grenades on police stations in the insurgent stronghold of Ramadi, 60 miles west of Baghdad, police said.
