KIRKUK, Iraq - A suicide bomber killed three people and wounded dozens in Iraq's Kirkuk city on Thursday after he blew up his car outside a bank where police were collecting their salaries.

The bomber drove his car into the bank premises, damaging nearby buildings and setting parked vehicles on fire in the city center, local authorities said.

Black smoke billowed from the blast site as emergency workers helped the wounded into ambulances. One body lay in the street near the wreckage from the attack.
