Attacks in Iraq, including a suicide bombing at a university in north Baghdad, killed at least 14 people yesterday.

The attacks, which come as Iraq suffers a prolonged surge in bloodshed, took place, less than two weeks before a parliamentary election that will be a major test for security forces.

An interior ministry official said the bombing took place at the entrance to the university, while a second bomber was shot dead.

Iraq is hit by daily bombings and shootings that kill hundreds of people each month, but attacks targeting universities are relatively rare.
