Militants fought Iraqi security forces in the northern city of Mosul Friday, a day after parts of another city were briefly overrun by insurgents.The Iraqi army regained control in Samarra later the same day after bombing the city, but violence then spread to neighboring Nineveh province and its capital Mosul, where more than 30 people were killed in attacks Friday.Three more soldiers were killed fighting militants in east Mosul, while security forces shot dead five would-be suicide bombers in the Hammam al-Alil area, south of the city.The violence in Nineveh, one of the most dangerous areas of Iraq, came as the United Nations said it believed close to 480,000 people had been displaced during a crisis in Anbar province, where anti-government fighters have held all of one city and parts of another for months.
