A suicide car bomber struck a busy market in the disputed city of Kirkuk on Thursday, killing seven and wounding 50 people, most shoppers preparing for the upcoming feast Eid al-Fitr that ends the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The target of the attack in a predominantly Kurdish neighborhood of Kirkuk, 290 kilometers north of Baghdad, was a police convoy of three cars ferrying the city's traffic police chief and his guards, police Brig. Gen. Sarhat Qadir said.
