25 killed in latest bout of Iraq violence
BY DAVID RISING
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- A suicide bomber rammed a police checkpoint in northern Iraq with a vehicled loaded with explosives Saturday, killing 14 people, including some who died when their homes collapsed in the blast.
The suicide bombing in Tal Afar -- a city cited by President George W. Bush earlier this year as an example of improved security in Iraq -- was the deadliest attack on a day when more than two dozen people died in violence around the country.
Four police officers and 10 civilians were killed when the vehicle detonated after speeding into the checkpoint, police Brig. Sabah al-Maamari said. Some of the victims died when parts of nearby homes collapsed from the force of the blast in the city, about 30 miles from the Syrian border.
Separately, more victims of Iraq's Shi'ite-Sunni violence were found, with seven bullet-riddled bodies in Baghdad, where U.S. and Iraqi troops have been trying for more than a month to put down sectarian killings in intensified neighborhood-by-neighborhood sweeps.
One U.S. soldier with the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, died Friday near Beiji, 155 miles north of Baghdad, the military said Saturday. No other details were given.
In Mosul, gunmen killed a woman who was walking with her 5-year-old son, Mosul police Col. Abdel-Karim al-Jubouri said. The boy was not harmed, he said.
The U.S. military had predicted a spike in violence with the onset of Ramadan two weeks ago -- something that the chief U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell said had been borne out.
Authorities extended indefinitely a regular Friday ban on all pedestrian and vehicular traffic in the northern city of Kirkuk, which has been hit by a wave of violence recently. A series of six bombings there Sept. 17, killed 24 people and wounded 84.
Some 2,000 police and Iraqi soldiers used the curfew to conduct raids, arresting 150 suspected insurgents, Police Lt. Gen. Sherko Shaker said.
Two bodies were fished out of the Tigris River in downtown Baghdad on Saturday, said police Lt. Bilal Ali Majid. Both had their hands and legs bound and showed signs of torture -- hallmarks of the sectarian death squads that roam the capital.
Later in the southeastern suburbs of the capital, the bodies of five people who had been shot and handcuffed were discovered, police Capt. Mahir Hamad Mousa said.
Two workers at a Shi'ite-run bakery in Baghdad's Mansour district were killed by gunmen in the early afternoon, said police Lt. Maitham Abdel Razzaq. The gunmen got out of their car, sprayed the bakery with bullets -- injuring a third person -- and then drove away, he said.
