June 21, 2007 -- Police say a suicide truck bomber killed at least 16 people when he rammed his vehicle into the municipal headquarters of a northern Iraqi town today.
Police said the attack occurred in Sulaiman Pek, a town 90 kilometers south of Kirkuk.
Women and children are believed to be among the dead.
Meanwhile, in the capital, Baghdad, several mortars landed inside the heavily fortified Green Zone.
The Green Zone houses Iraq's parliament, as well as the U.S. and British embassies.
It is unclear if there were any casualties.
In other developments, the U.S. military said two of its soldiers were killed on June 20 in a roadside bombing southwest of Baghdad.
More than 3,800 coalition soldiers have died in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion.
