A roadside bomb went off near a town in Salahudin province north of Baghdad on Thursday, wounding five Iraqi soldiers, a provincial police source said.

The attack took place in the afternoon near the town of Tuz-Khurmato, 90 km east of the provincial capital of Tikrit, and badly damaged a military vehicle, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Two of the wounded soldiers were in serious condition, the source said.

Earlier in the day, a suicide car bomber struck the convoy of Brigadier Khattab Omer, commander of emergency police force of Kirkuk province, in the city of Kirkuk, some 250 km north of Baghdad, killing six people and wounding 22 others, Brigadier Burhan Wasif, the city police chief told Xinhua by telephone.

Omer was critically wounded and two of his bodyguards were killed by the blast, Wasif said.

Four other civilians were also killed in the attack and 21 others were wounded, including women and children, he added.
