BAGHDAD, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Two Iraqi soldiers and two other people were killed in separate attacks in and near the restive capital city of Baghdad on Friday, said the police.

A police officer, on condition of anonymity, told Xinhua that two soldiers were killed and two others wounded when a road side bomb hit their patrol in Mushahda area, some 20 km north of Baghdad.

Unidentified gunmen assassinated a Sunni cleric in the Washash district in the western part of Baghdad with weapons with silencers, said the source, adding that the attackers fled the scene after the killing.

The official said unidentified gunmen, on the same day, stormed the house of a retired officer of the Iraqi army in Baghdad's southern district of Dora and shot him dead.
