A suicide car bomber killed 17 people Tuesday in northern Iraq after insurgents lured police to the scene by shooting a policeman, then blasting investigators and bystanders. The suicide bomber struck on a busy commercial street in Kirkuk, a mixed Arab, Kurdish and Turkoman city in an oil-producing region 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Baghdad. Police Brig. Gen. Sarhad Qader said 17 people were killed and 28 injured, although he gave no breakdown of police and civilians among the victims.
