Baquba (Iraq): Five policemen were killed
on Tuesday when a roadside bomb engulfed their vehicle in the
disputed Diyala province of central Iraq, a security official
said.
The officers, part of a commercial trading standards
brigade, were on a mission when the blast occurred in Jalawla,
a town north of the provincial capital Baquba, northeast of
Baghdad.
Diyala, which is ethnically and religiously mixed, still
sees sporadic attacks despite security improvements recorded
elsewhere in Iraq.
