font size    

Two suicide car bomb attacks hit two police stations in Iraq's restive city of Ramadi, 110 km west of Baghdad, on Monday, killing and wounding 20 policemen, a local police source said.

A suicide bomber drove an explosive-laden vehicle into the police station of al-Jazeera area in eastern Ramadi, killing and wounding at least 15 policemen, the source said.

Minutes later, another suicide car bomb attack rocked the police station of Albu Diyab village near Ramadi, wounding five policemen, the source said.

The police station under the second attack is close to the house of Shiekh Abdul Sattar Abu Risha, a tribal leader who has led a government-backed campaign to fight al-Qaida militants in Anbar province, the source added.

Ramadi is the capital of the volatile Anbar province, which includes Fallujah City. The province has long been a Sunni stronghold of fight against U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces.
