BAGHDAD, (Reuters) – A female suicide bomber killed six people and wounded a dozen others when she blew herself up north of Baghdad on Tuesday, Iraqi police said. They said the attack took place outside a police station in multi-ethnic Diyala province, where there has been several suicide bombings in recent weeks.

A police source said most of the dead were policemen.

There have been several attacks by female suicide bombers in Iraq in the past few months, especially in Diyala which is one the northern provinces where al Qaeda has sought sanctuary after being driven out of Anbar province in the west and Baghdad.
