Map - Iraq
Reports from northern Iraq say a roadside bomb has killed one security contractor and wounded at least two others.

Police said the bomb exploded on June 17 as a two-vehicle convoy was traveling in the oil-rich city of Kirkuk.

The victims were Iraqis working for a Turkish company providing security for a Turkish construction project.

At least four other people have died in blasts across the country.

The violence comes a day after more than 30 people were killed in two car bombs targeting Shi'ite pilgrims in the capital, Baghdad.

More than 70 people were also killed in a wave of attacks across Iraq on June 13.
