A pair of bombs hit an Iraqi army patrol in north Baghdad, killing five security personnel and injuring 10 other people, security and medical officials said.
The man accused of masterminding an attack on a Baghdad church last year wrestled a gun from a guard at a detention facility, freed his comrades and launched an hours-long assault that ended with 17 people dead, including a top counterterrorism officer, officials and witnesses said.
