Four killed in north Iraq suicide car bomb
2013-02-12
Update: now nine dead.
[FRANCE24] A suicide boom-mobile near an army base in north Iraq killed at least four people on Monday, security officials said, the latest in an uptick in violence nationwide amid a political crisis.

The blast struck in the al-Muthanna area of djinn-infested Mosul, which lies 350 kilometres (220 miles) north of Storied Baghdad
...located along the Tigris River, founded in the 8th century, home of the Abbasid Caliphate...
, killing four people and wounding five others, according to security and medical officials.

Also north of the capital, a roadside kaboom killed a policeman and maimed two others in the disputed city of Kirkuk,
... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time...
while a police brigadier general was badly maimed by a magnetic "sticky bomb" attached to his car, officials said.
