Iraqi police say two suicide bombings north of Baghdad have killed at least 33 people and wounded about 100 others.
In Tuesday's deadliest attack, a suicide car bombing at a checkpoint in the town of Baiji in Salahuddin province killed at least 23 people and wounded around 80.
The bomber appeared to target Iraqi soldiers and members of a U.S.-backed volunteer force who were manning the checkpoint. Iraq's interior ministry fired Baiji's police chief following the blast, which was the latest of several attacks to hit the oil refinery town recently.
Also today, the U.S. military says a suicide bomber blew himself up at a funeral in the city of Baquba in Diyala province, killing 10 people and wounding about 20 others. The funeral was for two members of a U.S.-allied neighborhood militia.
