BAGHDAD — An Iraqi police officer says three car bombs have exploded in the northern city of Kirkuk, wounding 27 civilians.

Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qadir said Saturday morning that the parked cars exploded over a 30-minute period in three adjacent Kurdish areas.

Qadir said it was not known whether there was a specific target for the blasts.

Kirkuk is 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Baghdad and is home to a mix of Arabs, Kurds and Turkomen, who all have competing claims to the oil-rich area.

The Kurds are seeking to incorporate Kirkuk into their autonomous region in Iraq's north. Arabs and Turkomen oppose that effort.
