Updated 30 November 2003, 12.30
Burnt our car
Eleven people have been killed in three separate attacks in Iraq.

On Saturday night, seven Spanish intelligence officers were killed in an ambush in the capital city, Baghdad.

Two Japanese diplomats were shot dead in the northern city of Tikrit. Two American soldiers also died in an attack near the Syrian border.

More than 100 coalition troops have been killed in November, making it the worst month so far for casualities since the end of the war.

They include 81 US troops, the seven Spaniards and 17 Italian soldiers who were killed in the bombing of the Italian military headquarters in Nasiriya.

No official figures are kept of the Iraqi death toll, but at least 250 Iraqis are believed to have been killed in attacks on coalition troops since 1 May.
