Mosul (Iraq), March 7 (Xinhua) At least four policemen were killed and 17 others wounded in a suicide car bomb attack Friday morning on a police station in Mosul, capital of the Nineveh province in northern Iraq, police said. The attack took place at about 7:00 a.m. when a suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into the Waqqass police station in the centre of city and blew it up, Nineveh police spokesman said.
The powerful blast partially destroyed the police station’s building as well as several other buildings nearby, he said.
Mosul, 400 km north of Baghdad, has been a hotbed of insurgency since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
