Baghdad: At least 12 people were killed and 15 injured as two bombs struck an Iraqi town Friday, police said.

The incident occurred when a roadside bomb went off in Tuz Khurmatu, some 170 km north of Baghdad. It was followed by a booby-trapped explosion as people rushed to the scene, reported Xinhua citing a police source.

The blasts killed eight Kurds, two Turkmans and two Arabs, while wounded others in the ethnically mixed town, the source added.
