BAGHDAD (AP) — Officials say separate bombings in northern Iraq have killed at least 10 people.
A police officer says Wednesday's attacks in the northern city of Kirkuk started with a parked car bomb explosion near offices of a Kurdish party followed by another bomb as police gathered, killing five and wounding four others.
He added that another parked car bomb hit an Iraqi army patrol in the Sunni-dominated town of Hawija to the west of Kirkuk, killing another five and wounding four others.
A health official confirmed the casualty figures. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.
Kirkuk is located some 290 kilometers (175 miles) north of Baghdad, is home of mix of Arabs, Kurds and Turkomen, all competing to control the city.
