Two car bombers attacked a market and a police checkpoint on the outskirts of Ramadi, killing at least 20 people.

A mortar attack also killed five people and wounded two others in Baiyaa, neighborhood in western Baghdad. Four Iraqi troops were killed in separate attacks in Baqouba, northeast of the capital.

The violence came a day after roadside bombs killed eight American soldiers, including six who died in a single blast in the surrounding province of Diyala.

The first attack targeted a public market about noon northwest of Ramadi, 70 miles west of Baghdad, killing 10 civilians and wounding about 30, police said.

About 15 minutes later, another bomber detonated his vehicle at a nearby police checkpoint, killing five police officers and five bystanders and wounding 10 others, police said.
