Iraqi officials say several insurgent attacks around the country have killed seven people and wounded 14.
Police and medical officials said Monday's attacks started when drive-by shooters killed an Iraqi army officer driving his car in eastern Baghdad in the morning hours.
An hour later, attackers gunned down a Kurdish politician as he was leaving his house in Iraq's northeastern Diyala province.
The officials say five other people, including three policemen and an Iraqi soldier, died in three separate attacks in and near Baghdad.
One of the attacks was by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosive-laden belt at a bus station.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.
