Iraq: Car bombs kill 10 in Kirkuk and northern Baghdad

16th May 2013

At least 15 people were killed in bomb blasts and a shooting in Iraq on Wednesday, police and hospital sources said.

Ten people were killed when two car bombs exploded near government buildings in the oil-rich city of Kirkuk.

Kirkuk deputy police chief Maj. Gen. Torhan Abdul-Rahman Youssef said a parked car bomb went off in the city center at around 3:00 pm, killing at least three civilians and wounded eight. An hour later, another parked bomb exploded in the same area and killed four more – two children and their parents – as they were traveling in a car nearby.

“There were two bodies on the ground outside the building, people were shouting and mess was everywhere,” said Rawaa Rahman, a government employee in Kirkuk who was wounded in the hand.

Although violence is well below the height of 2006-7, insurgents still carry out almost daily attacks to try to undermine the government.

The violence continued elsewhere. A suicide bomber on a motorcycle blew himself up near a police patrol in northern Baghdad, killing at least two policemen, police said.

A roadside bomb killed one policeman and wounded two others in a town near Mosul, 390 kilometers north of Baghdad, police and medic sources said.

Two gunmen were killed by the army when they attacked a military checkpoint in a village south of Mosul.
