A pair of roadside bombs killed three people in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, including two of the city's police chief's guards, police and hospital officials said. The first blast took place around 9:30 a.m. targeting a police convoy, a Kirkuk police officer said. The officer said two guards of the city's police chief were in the convoy and both were killed in the attack. The police chief was not in the convoy. Another roadside bomb targeting a police patrol went off minutes later about 200 meters down the street, killing a policeman, the officer said. The casualties were confirmed by an official at the hospital.
