Two suicide bombers struck in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk Sunday, killing at least six people and wounding more than 20 others, police and medical sources said.It is the first such attack since the central government in Baghdad seized the oil-rich city last month from Kurdish forces, who had been controlling Kirkuk for three years.Iraqi security forces advanced on the city, forcing the Kurdish peshmerga to withdraw.No group has claimed responsibility for Sunday's attacks but the suicide bombings are a trademark of Daesh (ISIS) militants.
