BAGHDAD — Officials say a car bomb and an assault on a local council building in Iraq have killed at least 10 people.
The deadlier of today’s attacks was in a village north of Baghdad where a car bomb targeted a police officer’s house, killing his father, brother and five nephews aged 7 to 11 years old. A police officer says six others were wounded. The officer was not in the house.
Security forces meanwhile foiled an attack on the local council of the western town of Rawah by five would-be suicide bombers disguised in police uniforms, says Muthana Ismail, head of the local security committee.
Ismail said two attackers were shot while the rest blew up themselves up outside.
Two policemen and an official were killed and 20 people wounded, he says.
