Car bomb hits police chief in Iraq's Kirkuk, 2 killed
[23/May/2011]

KIRKUK, Iraq, May 23 (Saba) -- A car bomb struck the convoy of a police chief in Iraq's northern city of Kirkuk on Monday, killing two people and wounding 14, a local police source reported .

The attack took place in the morning when a booby-trapped car parked on a main road in southern Kirkuk, some 250 km north of Baghdad, detonated near the convoy of the police chief of al- Rashad suburb, who escaped the attack with wounds, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The blast killed two passersby and wounded another 13 people, including four bodyguards of the police chief, the source said.

The attack came amid rising tension in the ethnically mixed city of Kirkuk following a wave of attacks, including a massive one on Thursday that claimed the lives of 29 people, most of whom were policemen.
