FALLUJAH: Attacks killed five Iraqi security  personnel and an academic on Wednesday, while a convicted Al Qaeda inmate detonated explosives in a Baghdad prison in an attempted suicide bombing,  officials said.    

Gunmen killed four police near Fallujah, west of Baghdad, a police captain and a medical source said, while gunmen in Mahmudiyah, south of the capital,  shot intelligence service Captain Muntasser Abdul Rizzaq, according to an  interior ministry official.     A doctor said Rizzaq later died in Mahmudiyah Hospital.    

And a magnetic “sticky bomb” killed a department head in the College of Agriculture on the Tikrit University campus, a police lieutenant colonel and a  doctor said.    

An inmate belonging to Al Qaeda blew himself up in the prison in central  Baghdad, wounding three guards and a fellow prisoner, the interior ministry  official said.    

“The prisoner was able to gather the explosives over a number of days” and  apparently formed them into an explosive belt, the official said, without  providing details on the source of the explosives.  

A police officer confirmed that the bomber survived the blast and was taken  to Al Kindi hospital.
