BAGHDAD, Iraq, AP -A suicide bomber on Tuesday exploded a truck rigged with a bomb outside the Iraqi president’s party headquarters in a northern city, killing four people and wounding 35, police said.

The explosion occurred in the parking lot of a building housing President Jalal Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan in the northern city of Mosul, said police Col. Abdul-Kareem Ahmed al-Jibouri.

He said the blast damaged the one-story building, killing four people and setting 17 cars on fire. He had earlier reported five dead, but later said it was a mistake.

The injured were taken to the Mosul General Hospital, he said. No other details were available.

Mosul is 225 miles northwest of Baghdad.
