BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — A suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden truck into a
village near the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar on Monday, killing at least 28 people and wounding 50 others, an Iraqi army official said.
At least 19 of those killed were children, Brig. Gen. Najim Abdullah told The Associated Press.
The blast left a 10-foot crater in the ground and damaged 10 homes in the Shiite Turkmen village of Qubbak, about six miles (10 kilometers) northeast of Tal Afar, the army official told CNN.
The suicide bomber used a dump truck and covered his deadly wares in a layer of
gravel, Abdullah told the AP.
In Baghdad, three roadside bombs detonated in various neighborhoods, killing at
least 11 people and wounding 33 others, according to the Iraqi Interior Ministry.
