MOSUL, Iraq: A suicide bomber drove a truck packed with explosives into the playground of a primary school in northern Iraq and blew himself up, killing 14 students and their headmaster on Sunday, police and medical sources said.
The attack followed a suicide bombing minutes earlier on a police station in the same town, Tel Afar, about 70 km northwest of Mosul city, where Sunni Islamist and other insurgents have a foothold. There were no casualties in the police station attack. (Reuters)
