A car bomb Sunday ripped through a Kirkuk bus terminal that serves travelers to Iraq's Kurdish region, killing eight people and wounding 26, according to a police spokesman. Police Brig. Gen. Sarhat Qadir said the explosion caused a huge fire and set 15 cars ablaze. The terminal is located in a mainly Kurdish area of Kirkuk, an oil rich city which Iraq's Kurds want to annex to their self-rule region in the north of the country. Gunmen meanwhile, sprayed a car carrying five bodyguards of the head of local Sunni Endowments department in the turbulent city of Basra, killing one of them and injuring the rest, police said.
