BAGHDAD  — Iraqi officials say three suicide bombers have attacked a police headquarters in the northern city of Mosul, killing the commander.

Police officials say three men with explosive vests attempted to blow up a police compound housing Iraq's First Police Battalion.

Police shot one of the bombers as the three approached the complex Wednesday. Two managed to get inside and blow themselves up, killing the battalion's commander, officials said.

A hospital official confirmed the fatality, but there was no word on the injured.

All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
