A suicide car bomber struck a police patrol in Iraq's western province of Anbar on Sunday, killing three policemen and wounding nine people, a well-informed local police source said.

The incident took place around 10 a.m. (0700 GMT) in the town of Garmah near the city of Fallujah, some 50 km west of Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Among the nine wounded, six were policemen, the source said.

The blast left a police vehicle along with three nearby civilian cars charred and also caused damaged to surrounding buildings, the source added.

The once volatile province of Anbar has been relatively calm for more than two years after Sunni tribes and anti-U.S. insurgent groups turned to cooperate with U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces against al-Qaida in Iraq network.
