Iraqi Police Recruits Killed in Suicide Car Bombing
02 January 2006
Iraqi authorities say a suicide car bomber has killed at least seven police recruits and wounded 13 others.
They say the bomber drove his car into the recruits' bus north of Baghdad Monday.
In the capital, gunmen attacked a convoy carrying Turkey's ambassador, in the latest attack against diplomatic personnel in Iraq. No serious injuries were reported in that incident.
Meanwhile, Iraqi Oil Minister Ibrahim Bahr al-Uloum says he resigned last week after the government put him on forced leave following his criticism of fuel price increases.
The U.S. military also says four American civilian contractors were killed and 18 others injured in an accident Sunday when their bus hit a truck in western Anbar province.
