Iraqi police targeted by suicide bomber, 12 killed

BAQUBA, Iraq, Jan 19 (Reuters) - A suicide bomber driving an ambulance killed 12 people and wounded more than 50 in an attack on Wednesday on an Iraqi police training centre in volatile Diyala province, a spokeswoman for the provincial governor said.

“There are more bodies buried in the ruins,” the governor’s spokeswoman, Samira al-Shibli, told Reuters.

It was the second attack by a suicide bomber in two days on Iraqi security forces. At least 49 people were killed in Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit on Tuesday when a suicide bomber attacked a line of police recruits.
