Car bomb kills three south of Iraq's Kirkuk

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A car bomb exploded in front of a restaurant south of the northern ethnically-mixed city of Kirkuk on Monday (May 5), killing three people and wounding 15 others, police and hospital sources said. Sources said a car parked outside a restaurant in Tuz Khurmatu town, 70 km (44 miles) south of Kirkuk 250 km (155 miles) north of Baghdad went off next to a GMC vehicle believed to carry off-duty soldiers who were on their way to Baghdad from Mosul. The vehicle caught fire, killing its three passengers. Hospital and police officials said the bodies were burnt beyond recognition and were believed to be those of soldiers. Levels of violence rose to their highest in years in 2013, when nearly 8,000 civilians were killed. Security forces are battling Sunni Muslim insurgents in the western province of Anbar, where militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) overran the city of Falluja on January 1.
