Developments in Iraq on April 29

April 29 (Reuters) - Following are security and political developments in Iraq on Saturday as of 0800 GMT.

Iraq is forming a new government of national unity to combat a mostly Sunni Arab insurgency. Sectarian tensions are running high after the bombing of a Shi'ite shrine in Samarra in February, which unleashed a wave of reprisal attacks.

JURF AL-SAKHAR - A policeman and his brother were abducted from their house by gunmen in Jurf al-Sakhar about 80 km (50 miles) south of Baghdad. Police said their bodies were dumped near their house two hours later.

QAIM - Three civilians were killed and seven wounded including three policemen when a suicide car bomb detonated near an Iraqi army base south of the town of Qaim near the Syrian border, Qaim police colonel Jamal Shihab said.
