At least eight people are wounded in a bomb attack near a police station in Kirkuk. A number of Iraqi police vehicles were hit in the attack. Last month at least 1,000 people, mainly civilians, were killed as Sunni militants swept through northern and western Iraq. Mass killings have become a regular occurrence in Iraq for the first time since the worst days of sectarian and ethnic cleansing in 2006-2007. The Sunni insurgents -- led by the group known as the Islamic State which considers all Shi'ites heretics who must repent or die -- boasted of killing hundreds of captive Shi'ite army troops after capturing the city of Tikrit on June 12.
