Attack Kills Two Iraqi Police
24 October 2005 -- Police say a suicide car bomber today killed two police officers in an attack on a police patrol in Baghdad.
The commander of Kirkuk's police force, Brigadier General Sarhat Qadir, said a roadside bomb also exploded in the northern city, seriously wounding a senior member of Iraq's Kurdish Democratic Party, Ibrahim Zangana. One of his bodyguards was killed and another one injured.
On 23 October, at least 30 Iraqis died in a swell of violence, including 12 Iraqi construction workers who were gunned down south of Baghdad.
Police sources say the workers were building a new government building in Mussayyib and that the attackers kidnapped the contractor who had hired them.
