Two car bomb attacks kill 37 in Iraq

At least 37 people were killed and 49 wounded Thursday in two suicide car bomb attacks, one in the restive northwestern town of Tal Afar and another in Baghdad, security sources said.

'Thirty people were killed and 45 others wounded,' when a sucide car bomb ripped through a crowded market in Tal Afar, police chief General Najrm Abdallah said.

The Tal Afar bombing comes almost a month after US and Iraqi armed forces ended their onslaught on the town, aimed at clearing it of insurgents ahead of Saturday's referendum which Sunni-led rebels have vowed to disrupt, according to Forbes.

On September 28, five people were killed when a woman suicide bomber blew hereself up at a police recruitment centre in Tal Afar, which lies between the main northern city of Mosul and the Syrian border.

In the Baghdad attack today, five soldiers and two civilians were killed and four others wounded when a suicide car bomber smashed into an army checkpoint in the western neighbourhood of Al-Amariyah, a defence ministry source said.
