` Suicide Bomber Kills Six Members of Security Forces ‘

 

#AceWorldNews – IRAQ – DUJAIL – At least seven people were killed, including 6 members of the security forces, and 15 were wounded when a suicide bomber blew up his car in the town of Dujail in Iraq on Saturday.

The incident took place at an army checkpoint just north of Baghdad. Earlier a blast at an outside market killed 4 people and wounded 17 in the town of Tarmiyah, just north of the capital. Another bomb went off in the town of Dawr killing three Sunni fighters.

The death toll in Iraq now stands at hundreds of thousands since the 2003 ouster of Saddam Hussein and occupation by US-led forces.

In the last month alone, over 1,000 people have been recorded as killed.

Civilian casualties make up nearly all the deaths resulting from terrorist attacks and other violence in the country, which is torn by sectarian and political unrest.
