#AceWorldNews -BAGHDAD – April 17 – Militants attacked a military base in a restive area in northern Iraq on Thursday, killing at least 10 soldiers and wounding 12, AP reported.

The morning attack took place at the base outside the city of Mosul, about 360km north-west of Baghdad.

A suicide bomber detonated his explosives-laden truck at the gates of the facility, and a group of gunmen then opened fire from apparently commandeered military Humvees.

Eight militants were also killed in the fighting.
