Baghdad’s deputy chief of police has been assassinated outside his home. Brigadier Amer Nayef was shot dead along with his son as they left the family home in the south of the Iraqi capital. At least three other Iraqis have been killed by a suicide bomber in a police car at a police station. Insurgents have stepped up their campaign of violence mainly against Iraqi security forces three weeks ahead of the country’s first free elections.
