BAGHDAD, Iraq – At least ten people were killed in a bomb attack Saturday in Iraq’s Salahuddin Province, north of the capital, Baghdad, security sources say.
A terrorist armed with an explosive device carried out the bombing outside the police headquarters in the town of Dajil, al-Zahra region, Sumer News Agency quoted an Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman as saying.
An unnamed security source said 10 people were killed and more than a dozen others wounded when the assailant was stopped by an officer and blew up the device.
The Iraqi Interior Ministry, however, has released a different count putting the casualty numbers at three killed and eight wounded.
The Daesh Takfiri terrorists claimed responsibility for the attack.
On May 11, Daesh claimed three car bomb blasts in Baghdad, including a huge blast at a market.
The Takfiri terrorists swept through parts of northern and western Iraq in June 2014. The terrorists have been committing crimes against all ethnic and religious communities in Iraq, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and others.
