Iraq: Militant attack in north Iraq kills 14

26th Sep 2013

Militants attacked local government buildings in north Iraq on Wednesday with suicide bombers and mortar fire and clashed with soldiers, leaving 14 people dead, an army officer said.

Seven civilians, three soldiers and four militants were killed in the violence in the town of Hawijah, west of Kirkuk, army Staff Major General Mohammed Khalaf al-Dulaimi said.

One suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle near a police station while a second blew up another near a local administrative building.

Militants then targeted those structures and a local council building with mortar fire, and gunmen attacked, leading to clashes with soldiers.

Soldiers were searching for the remaining militants, who left the area, Dulaimi said.

Iraq has seen a heightened level of violence since the beginning of the year that sharply worsened following an April 23 security forces operation against an anti-government protest site near Hawijah that sparked clashes in which dozens of people died.

Death tolls in Iraq have reached a level not seen since 2008, when the country was just emerging from a brutal internal conflict.
