Attacks in northern Iraq kill 2, injure 25 others
Associated Press
A+ A-

BAGHDAD: An Iraqi police commander says three separate attacks in a volatile northern city have killed two civilians and injured 25 others.

Kirkuk police commander Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qadir says insurgents attacked the house of a military officer early Thursday morning by planting four bombs around it, killing one and injuring six others from his family. The officer escaped unharmed.

A bomb in a parked car went off near restaurants a few hours later, Qadir added, killing one and wounding 15. Another parked car bomb targeting a police patrol followed, injuring two policemen and two civilian bystanders.

Kirkuk, 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Baghdad, is home to a combustible mix of Kurds, Sunni Arabs and Turkomen who all claim rights to the city and the oil-rich lands around it.
