A suicide truck bomb exploded Wednesday outside the Interior Ministry in the Kurdish city of Irbil, killing at least 12 people and wounding 53, officials said. Kurdish television showed footage of a building that had been almost completely destroyed. Rubble lay in piles and long metal beams were twisted. Rescue workers reached into the wreckage to pull out one of the victims of the blast. Windows were blown out down the street and wreckage was scattered nearly 100 meters away. Hamza Ahmed, a spokesman for the Irbil governor's office, said the blast targeted the Interior Ministry. He said that the casualties included police and civilians.
