A suicide bomber blew himself up while standing in a line of recruits outside Fallujah's police headquarters on Wednesday, killing at least 15 people and wounding 30, in an attack aimed at discouraging Sunni Arabs from joining the force, police said. Thirteen of the dead were recruits and two policemen, said police 1st Lt. Omar Ahmed. Police also found the bodies of 14 Iraqi men in Baghdad who apparently were the latest victims of a wave of sectarian violence involving death squads that kidnap civilians, torture them in captivity and dump their bodies on city streets. The attack in Fallujah, a former insurgent stronghold 65 kilometers west of Baghdad, was part of an insurgent campaign against US efforts to bring more Sunnis into the police and army.
