font size    

Seven car bombs, including a suicide one, went off in northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Saturday, killing two people and wounding up to 26, provincial police source told Xinhua.

A suicide bomber blew up his explosive-laden car near the offices of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in central Kirkuk, some 250 km north of Baghdad, Brigadier Burhan Taha, a police commander in the city told Xinhua by telephone.

At least two people were killed and 17 others were wounded in the attack, Taha said.

The KDP, whose leader is the president of the regional Kurdish government based in Arbil provinces, is one of the two major Kurdish parties in Iraq after the U.S. invasion in 2003.

According to Taha, the second car bomb that went off in the al- Khadraa neighborhood and the third one detonated in Domiez neighborhood. Each of the bomb wounded two people.

The fourth car bomb, detonated near the house of a resident named Sirdar Sabir, caused no injuries as the house was empty, said Taha, but adding that the house was totally destroyed in the attack.

The fifth car bomb went off near a mosque in the Wasiti neighborhood in the city, wounding two civilians, he said.

The sixth car bomb detonated on the Tariq Baghdad neighborhood, wounding three, while the seventh hit the Urouba neighborhood and caused damage to nearby houses.

Maj. Gen. Shierko Shaker, chief police of the city told the Iraqi official television that the city authorities had imposed a curfew on the oil-rich city, which started from 4:00 p.m. (1300 GMT) and last to 6:00 a.m. (0300 GMT) Sunday.
