Suicide bomber kills six in Kurdish-held Iraqi city Kirkuk - police

A suicide bomber kills at least six people, including two Kurdish security personnel, in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk Wednesday. It is the first such attack to hit the city since Kurdish peshmerga fighters occupied it two weeks ago. More than 20 people were injured. Authorities say the suicide bomber blew himself up when police stopped him as he tried to enter a crowded market in a mostly Kurdish neighborhood. A Kurdish security source says the suicide attacker was wearing Kurdish dress. Kurdish security forces suspected he was hiding something under his clothes, and when they tried to stop him at the entrance to search him, he blew himself up. The United Nations says more than 1,000 people, mainly civilians, have been killed as Sunni insurgents advance in Iraq, spearheaded by al Qaeda offshoot -- the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
