Baghdad Locked Down, But Violence Persists Elsewhere In Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq The Iraqi capital is quiet Saturday as a curfew imposed in fear of imminent attacks kept residents inside, but violence persists in other areas of the country.

Police say gunmen killed an Iraqi man who had been working as an interpreter for the U-S military in an area about 60 miles south of Baghdad. Another person was killed about 30 miles away when a bomb exploded.

In Tal Afar, 260 miles northwest of Baghdad, police opened fire on a suspected car bomber. The vehicle detonated, killing two.

Baghdad police today found six corpses in the eastern section of the capital, more apparent victims of the sectarian death squads that roam the city.
