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.
