Violence in Iraq on Saturday killed eight people including a police officer, his wife and two children, and gunmen also kidnapped five police officers, officials said.
Gunmen broke into the home of the administrator for the Rashid area, south of Baghdad, killing one of his guards, an interior ministry official said.
They then moved to the nearby house of Captain Adnan al-Obaidi, a member of a police anti-terrorism unit, and killed him, his wife and their two children, the official said.
A medical official confirmed the toll.
