KIRKUK, Iraq - Militants launched a coordinated assault against local government and police buildings in northern Iraq on Wednesday, with suicide car bombs and mortar attacks killing at least 10 people, police and medical sources said.

The attacks, which military officials said looked like the work of al-Qaida, began when two suicide car bombs were detonated outside the local council building and police headquarters in the town of Hawija.

Militants then fired mortar rounds before engaging the army in gunfire, killing three soldiers, military sources said. At least three attackers were also shot dead. The militants withdrew after reinforcements arrived.
