BAGHDAD - A female suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest struck a checkpoint of neighbourhood patrol volunteers in Baquba, capital of Iraq's restive Diyala province yesterday, killing 10 people and wounding eight.
Police said most of the victims were mostly patrol volunteers, and many of the wounded were in serious condition.
The mainly Sunni Arab neighbourhood patrols, paid by US forces to oppose Sunni al-Qaeda militants, have frequently been targeted in recent months, and suicide bombings remain common even as overall violence in the country has declined.
There have been a handful of attacks by female bombers in recent weeks. - Reuters
