'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

BAGHDAD — A trio of bombs exploded on Sunday in the northwest Iraq city of Mosul, killing four security officers and wounding seven other people, officials said.

The violence began with a car bomb that killed two soldiers and wounded another five, police officials said. A second bomb, which was placed under a vehicle, exploded, wounding two people. Later, a roadside bomb killed a police officer and a soldier.

A health official confirmed the casualties in an industrial area of the city, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad.

A surge in violence is expected in Iraq in the lead- up to provincial elections on April 20.

Mosul is the capital of Ninevah province. The Iraqi government has delayed elections throughout the province because of violence.

Elections also have been delayed in the Sunni-dominated Anbar province in western Iraq.
