6/04/2006 World News: Iraq Violence Continues Amid Political Deadlock On Key Security Posts


Iraq: Violence in Iraq has claimed more lives today (Sunday), as Iraqi political leaders continue to grapple over choices to run the country's army and police.
Police say insurgents killed at least 19 people, including students, after dragging them off buses at a makeshift checkpoint in a town north of Baghdad.
Iraq's Interior Ministry says gunmen shot dead four employees of a telephone company and wounded two others near Baghdad's Sadr City.
And in the southern city of Basra, police say at least 11 people were killed in a clash at a Sunni mosque.

Iran Nuclear: Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says oil flows in the region will be endangered if the United States makes what he calls a "wrong move" towards the Islamic Republic.
The Iranian spiritual leader issued the warning today (Sunday) in a speech (broadcast live on state radio) marking the anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic.
He did not specify how oil supplies would be disrupted, and insisted Iran would not start any war.

Afghan Violence: Afghan officials say a suicide car bomber has killed at least four civilians and wounded 12 others in the southern city of Kandahar.
The suicide attack took place today (Sunday) in downtown Kandahar near a convoy carrying (Asaddullah Khalid,) the governor of Kandahar province. The governor was not hurt by the explosion.
Witnesses say a convoy of Canadian troops was also in the area where the blast occurred. But, U.S.-led coalition officials say there were no casualties among foreign forces.
