Sunday September 17, 2006
A suicide truck bomb and two car bombs killed 20 people and wounded 65 in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Sunday.
According to Reuters, police said on Sunday: In the deadliest blast, a suicide attacker driving a truck rigged with explosives blew himself up outside the offices of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), the political party of Iraq’s President Jalal Talabani.
Two car bombs also rocked the oil-rich city north of Baghdad. Settling Kirkuk’s final status is regarded as one of post-war Iraq’s most sensitive issues.
