Suicide attack kills 21 police officers in central Iraq

A suicide attack on a police headquarters in central Iraq killed at least 21 officers and wounded 60 other people Thursday morning, health officials said. Most of the injured were police, Iraq’s Interior Ministry said. The suicide car bombing took place in Hilla during a handover between the overnight and morning shifts, according to the ministry. The attack bears the hallmark of al Qaeda in Iraq, according to officials, who said they didn’t know whether it was in retaliation for the killing of terror leader Osama bin Laden.
