Suicide Bomber Kills 15 at Iraq Police HQ

A suicide car bomber wearing a police uniform killed at least 15 traffic policemen and wounded 100 others Monday during morning roll call at a police headquarters in this oil-rich northern Kurdish city, the second such attack in as many days. The bombing was the latest in a relentless series of explosions that have killed nearly 1,200 people in less than two months. On Sunday, a suicide bomber walked into a Baghdad kebab restaurant popular with policemen and blew himself up, killing 23 people, including seven officers. “Most of the attacks targeting the Iraqi security forces, including the police, are launched by Islamic fundamentalists,” said Sabah Kadhim, an Interior Ministry spokesman. ” Iraq has become the center of global terrorism, and those groups’ attacks are aiming to create a sectarian crisis.
