The U.S. military says 15 militants were killed in Baghdad Tuesday in a series of strikes.

In the deadliest incident, soldiers tracked down a group of militants launching rocket propelled grenade attacks and killed six.

The U.S. military also said it fired missiles at a car being used to transport rockets in the Sadr City district of Baghdad, but it denied there were any civilians in the area.

The Associated Press reports at least eight civilians died in the attack.

Separately, one Iraqi soldier died and four others were wounded in (the northern Iraqi city of) Mosul, when a bomb attached to a vehicle blew up near the city's Provincial Hall.

In Diyala province, a female suicide bomber blew herself up near a police station, killing at least six people and wounding 12 others.
