Blast North of Baghdad Kills Six

  • VOA News

Iraqi police say at least six people have been killed by a car bomb explosion in the northwestern town of Tal Afar.

Authorities say at least 20 others were wounded in Saturday's attack.

Separately, on Friday police said a suicide car bomber had attacked the convoy of Iraqi Shi'ite politician Ahmad Chalabi. Chalabi was not harmed, but the attack killed two people and wounded 17 others, including five of Chalabi's bodyguards.

The motorcade was heading to Chalabi's office in western Baghdad. There are conflicting accounts whether he was in the convoy.

Chalabi, a secular Shi'ite, was a Pentagon favorite and advisor to Washington before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
