Suicide bomber kills 10 at Iraqi police station

A suicide car bomb attack at a police station in Kirkuk yesterday killed at least 10 people and wounded 45 others. The attack raised fears for the fragile peace which has held in the oil-rich, northern Iraqi city since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. The blast was the latest in a wave of suicide and car bomb attacks which have targeted the poorly equipped Iraqi security forces and those deemed to be collaborating with the US-led coalition. More than 270 Iraqis have died in such attacks this year.
