BAGHDAD: A suicide bomber has killed seven people in an attack on security forces in Iraq's Anbar province.
Two police officials in Baghdad say the suicide bomber, who was driving a minibus, attacked a checkpoint of Iraqi soldiers and police officers at about 8 a.m. Wednesday. Six police were among the dead, and 17 people were injured.
Officials say the attack happened in the former insurgent stronghold of Ramadi, 70 miles (115 kilometers) west of Baghdad. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
