Suicide Bomber Kills 10 In Iraq

At least 10 people have been killed, following a suicide car bombing, which targeted a checkpoint, in northern Iraq.

At least ten people, including four policemen, were killed by a suicide bomber in a car that targeted a checkpoint in northern Iraq on Sunday, police and medical sources said.

The attack happened in Udhaim, a Sunni town 90 km (56 miles) north of Baghdad that US-backed Iraqi security forces and Iran-backed Shi’ite militias took back from Islamic State last year.

The ultra-hardline Sunni insurgents still control vast areas in northern and western Iraq, including the city of Mosul, captured in 2014.
