At least 33 people were killed and 52 more were wounded in fresh violence. In the most chilling event, Iraqi forces arrived at the home of a member of parliament to arrest him.
Security forces arrived at the Ramadi home of M.P. Ahmed al-Awlani to arrest him and his brother on terrorism charges that likely stem from the lawmaker’s criticism of the Shi’ite-led government. Awlani was detained, but not before a clash between his guards and security forces erupted at the compound. Awlani’s brother, a soldier and five guards were killed, and another 17 people were wounded​. A sister was reported to have been among the dead, and Awlani was treated for injuries. The arrest could signal renewed suppression of Sunni politicians by Shi’ite P.M. Nouri al-Maliki.
Also in Ramadi​, a dumped body bearing gunshot wounds was found in an area used for protests.
In Mosul, two soldiers were killed and three more were wounded in a suicide blast. Later, three suicide bombers stormed a station, where they killed three people and wounded 12 others, both police and civilians. An I.E.D. injured two civilians​. Another bomb wounded a colonel.
In Riyadh, gunmen killed three Sahwa members and wounded four more. One gunman was also killed and another was wounded​.
A bomb in Falluja killed a police officer; one bodyguard was also killed and two more were wounded​. A roadside bomb killed one soldier and wounded two more.
A policeman was killed and five others were wounded when a bomb exploded in Haditha​.
