Suicide bomber, gunmen kill 33 in Iraqi city

A suicide bomber driving a car and gunmen disguised as police killed at least 33 people in Iraq's Kirkuk on Sunday when they tried to storm a city police headquarters, police sources said.


Kirkuk, a religiously and ethnically mixed area of Arabs, Kurds and Turkman, is at the heart of a dispute over oil and land between Baghdad's central government and the autonomous Kurdistan enclave in the north. The Sunday morning blast wounded at least 70 more people and police said there were still bodies trapped under the collapsed debris in Kirkuk, 170 km (105 miles) north of the capital Baghdad. (AP)
