BAGHDAD, (Reuters) – A suicide bomber rammed a truck laden with explosives into two police cars near the northern Iraqi town of Baiji on Friday, killing at least seven policemen, a police source said.
An official at a joint police and army coordination centre put the death toll at 10, and said he believed it could rise further because identification cards had been found at the scene which did not belong to bodies so far recovered.
The police cars were parked outside a restauraunt, 3 km (two miles) south of Baiji, the official said. He said eight civilians were wounded in the attack.
The bombing took place a day after U.S. President George W. Bush approved a limited U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq, but said the U.S. military role will stretch beyond his presidency.
