Suicide attack in Iraq kills seven
BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a suicide attack targeting the police in the country’s east has killed at least seven policemen and wounded 14.
A police officer says the bomber drove his explosives-laden truck into the concrete blast walls outside the police headquarters in the town of al-Salam early this morning. The town is about 47 miles northeast of Baghdad and close to the city of Baqouba, a former al-Qaida stronghold.
A medical official confirmed the casuality figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to talk to media.
