KIRKUK, Iraq: A suicide bomber targeted a polling centre in Tuz Khurmatu north of Baghdad on Monday, killing three policemen and wounding seven, the town's mayor said.

The attacker struck shortly after another suicide bomber blew himself up at a polling centre in Baghdad, killing five people and wounding seven as security forces were casting their votes before Wednesday's parliamentary elections.
