At least 16 killed in two blasts in IraqFebruary 12th, 2009 - 12:42 am ICT by IANS
Baghdad, Feb 11 (DPA) At least 16 people were killed and more than 40 injured in two blasts in the most deadly of a series of attacks that rocked Iraq Wednesday, the Dubai-based al-Arabiya satellite network reported.
The twin blasts in Baghdad followed an attack in the northern city of Mosul, some 400 km north of Baghdad.
In that attack, a suicide bomber drove a car loaded with explosives into a joint Iraqi-US military patrol, killing at least one Iraqi soldier, a police spokesman told DPA.
And in the southern city of Iskandria, a bombing killed two policemen on patrol, the spokesman added.
In the northern city of Kirkuk, which both Arabs and Kurds covet for its rich oil reserves, a bomb apparently intended for a passing police patrol exploded in the Kirkuk Games neighbourhood of the city.
No one was killed in that attack, a police source told Baghdad’s Voices of Iraq news agency.
