MOSUL: Seven people were killed, including four police, when a suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden truck into the compound of a police station in northern Iraq on Tuesday, a police official said.
Seventeen people were wounded in the explosion in the volatile city of Mosul, where al Qaeda and other insurgent groups are making a stand as violence across the rest of Iraq recedes six years after the U.S.-led invasion.
