A suicide truck bomb struck an Iraqi recruitment center in a town west of Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 23 recruits and wounding some 30 others, local police source said.

"A suicide bomber drove a truck rigged with explosives and blewit up at the entrance of an Iraqi army recruitment center in the town of Haswah, 40 km west of Baghdad," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The suicide attack targeted a group of Sunni Arab recruits queuing to sing up in the Iraqi security forces, the source added.

Tribal leaders in Iraq's predominantly Sunni province of Anbar have turned against militiamen of al-Qaida organization, encouraging their sons to joint the local security forces to fight militiamen of al-Qaida network.

Residents in western Iraq often blame al-Qaida organization in Iraq for deadly attacks after rifts emerged between Sunni tribes and al-Qaida's militants.

Al-Qaida's adherence to a hardline form of Sunni Islam and indiscriminate killings has brought it into conflict with some Sunni tribes in the Anbar province where Fallujah and Ramadi located.
