A car bomb exploded outside a liquor store in northern Iraq overnight, killing at least 12 civilians, a senior police officer said Sunday.
Authorities say the blast happened Saturday in the al-Wassiti neighborhood in the city of Kirkuk, about 270 kilometers north of Baghdad.
Militants often target nightclubs, liquor stores and brothels because they want to impose a strict interpretation of Islam in Iraq.
The attack comes as Iraq\’s Shiite-led government is struggling to contain a surge in sectarian violence not seen since the country was pushed to the brink of civil war in 2006 and 2007 after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled dictator Sadaam Hussein.
