Security forces killed by car bomb
A triple suicide bombing against a security check point north of Baghdad killed at least 11 members of the security forces yesterday, a police officer said. The spokesman for the Salahuddin province police force, Col Mohammed Al Jabouri, said three militants rammed their explosives- laden vehicles early in the morning into the main check point near the town of Al Salam at the province’s northern entrance. Al Jabouri said 34 other security officers were wounded. The attack occurred as the local police chief and head of the provincial security committee were visiting the site. Both were unhurt.
