At least seven policemen were killed and ten others were injured on Sunday in a suicide bomb attack in Iraq\’s Kirkuk Governorate province, a police source said.
Authorities say the bomber drove his explosives-laden vehicle into a security checkpoint northwest of the city of Kirkuk.
Officials say at least 10 people were wounded in the attack Sunday.
No one has claimed responsibility for the assault.
Iraq has been experiencing its worst violence in recent years, driven by widespread discontent among its Sunni Arab minority and the civil war in neighboring Syria.
