Iraqi Police Commander Killed In Suicide Attack

Iraqi police say three suicide bombers have stormed a police battalion headquarters in the city of Mosul, killing four police including a commander.

A fourth suicide bomber was reportedly killed by police before he was able to enter the main building.

The slain commander had escaped five previous assassination attempts.

An Al-Qaeda-linked group known as the Islamic State of Iraq has claimed responsibility for the attack, which comes two days after suicide bombers killed 17 people and wounded dozens in a raid on a government building in the western city of Ramadi.
