Gunmen in five sedans on Sunday ambushed a convoy of buses carrying police recruits near the restive city of Baqouba northeast of Baghdad, killing at least 15 and wounding 25 others, police said. Authorities said dozens of other recruits were feared abducted following the midday attack outside a police recruiting center just south of Baqouba, 60 kilometers (35 miles) northeast of Baghdad. Security officials imposed a three-day curfew over the city.
