font size    

Dozens of people were killed and injured in a series of bombing attacks in the Iraqi northern city of Kirkuk on Tuesday.

Two suicide car bombs and three car bombings went off in Kirkuk on Tuesday, deputy police chief told Xinhua.

There were no immediate words on casualties, Major General Torhan Abdul Rahamn added.

But some media reports said that the death toll from the bombing attacks rose to at least 24 people.

A suicide car targeted Gen. Rahman himself while he was heading to his work in the Kirkuk police directorate, he said.

Two car bombs targeted the house of a police officer in the city, he said, adding that a fourth car bomb detonated near a police patrol in the Wasiti neighborhood.

A fifth car bomb attack targeted the headquarters of a leading Kurdish party, the Kurdistani Patriotic Union, which is headed by the Iraqi President Jalal al-Talabani.
