Suicide bomber kills 2 in northern Iraq
Sulaimaniyah: Police say a suicide bomber has killed two people after detonating his explosives-packed car near a bank where policemen were picking up their paychecks in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk.
Kirkuk police spokesman Brig Gen Sarhat Qadir says 43 people were wounded in the Thursday morning blast, most of them policemen.
Qadir says a policeman and a civilian died in the blast.
Kirkuk is located 180 miles (290 kilometres) north of Baghdad. The city has for years been rife with tensions among Kurds, Sunni Arabs and Turkomen who all claim rights to the oil-rich land.
Meanwhile, two officials say a police officer was killed by gunmen driving by on a motorbike in Baghdad. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to release the information.
