Death toll rises to 65 in Iraq bombing

An Iraqi medical official says the death toll in a suicide attack on police recruits in northern Iraq has risen to 65.



Baghdad: An Iraqi medical official says the
death toll in a suicide attack on police recruits in northern Iraq has risen to 65.
Hospital director Dr. Raied al-Ani says 150 people were
wounded in the attack, which occurred yesterday in Saddam
Hussein`s hometown of Tikrit.

A suicide bomber joined hundreds of recruits waiting
outside a police station in Tikrit to submit applications for
2,000 newly created jobs.
No group has taken responsibility, but the attack was in
the style of al-Qaida-linked Sunni groups that want to keep
fellow Sunnis from joining the security forces.
