A booby-trapped car, driven by a suicide bomber, blew off close to a gathering of security men, close to 1st June Bank in central Kirkuk, waiting to get their salaries, to kill and injure dozens of them, the city’s Police Director, Sarhad Qader told Aswat al-Iraq early in the day.

 

“The attack has caused severe damage, burning 2 houses, damaging 18 civilian cars along with huge damage to the bank’s building, along with killing and injuring dozens of people,” Qader stressed.
