FALLUJA, Iraq - A bomb attached to a military bus killed 15 Iraqi soldiers and wounded 20 others when it went off at an army base in western Iraq on Wednesday, army sources said.
They said the explosion occurred inside an Iraqi military base in Habaniya, near the town of Falluja around 85 km (50 miles) west of Baghdad.
"The soldiers finished their academic training and a bus took them to have breakfast at the restaurant in the base. When the bus reached the restaurant it exploded," one of the sources said.
In a separate incident, at least 25 people were wounded when a bomb exploded by restaurants and coffee shops in the town of al-Hamza, just south of Hilla, 100 km (60 miles) south of Baghdad, police sources said.
