A suicide bomber slammed his truck into a densely populated residential area in the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar on Monday, killing at least 25 people, police said.
The attack occurred in a crowded Shiite neighborhood of the mixed city, which lies about 420 kilometers (260 miles) northwest of Baghdad.
At least 22 others were wounded in the attack, said Brig. Gen. Rahim al-Jibouri, commander of Tal Afar police. The death toll was expected to rise, he said.
The attacker drove a dump truck filled with explosives and covered with a thin layer of construction materials, al-Jibouri said.
Within an hour of the attack, authorities imposed a complete curfew on the city, he said.
