Two suicide car bombers attacked a market and a police post in separate attacks outside the Iraqi town of Ramadi on Monday, killing 20 people and wounding dozens of others, police said. The first attack targeted a public market about noon just outside of Ramadi, 115 kilometers west of Baghdad, killing 10 civilians and wounding about 30 others, police said. About 15 minutes later, another car bomber detonated his vehicle at a police checkpoint north of Ramadi, killing five police officers and five bystanders and wounding 10 others, the police said.
