Two car bombs exploded in different parts of the oil-rich Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Monday, killing at least 12 people and wounding 37, police said. The first explosion occurred near a market in southern Kirkuk, which has an Arab majority, while the second took place in the center of the city, targeting a residential area with a mixed Kurdish and Turkomen population. Kirkuk, 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Baghdad, has seen a recent rise in violence that many blame on insurgents who have fled a security crackdown in Baghdad.
