BAGHDAD, (AP) – Iraqi officials say an interior ministry brigadier has been killed in a drive-by shooting in western Baghdad.

A police officer and an interior ministry official say gunmen killed Brig. Adel Abbas and his driver as they drove to work Sunday morning. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Abbas worked in the ministry’s criminal investigation department.

In another attack, police and hospital officials say a finance ministry director was seriously wounded when a bomb exploded in his car, also in western Baghdad.
