BAGHDAD - At least five people were killed in a suicide car bomb attack in a northern Iraqi town which has recently witnessed deadly clashes between Kurdish and Shi'ite paramilitary forces, the mayor and security sources said on Saturday.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast in Tuz Khurmatu, about 175 km (110 miles) north of Baghdad.

The target was a police checkpoint near the entrance to a market in a predominantly Shi'ite Turkmen district, mayor Shalal Abdul said. He said 19 others were wounded, many in critical condition.

At least two of those killed were police, the security sources said.
