A suicide bomber attacked an army recruiting station near a US-Iraqi military base in northern Iraq Monday, killing 40 people and wounding 30 others, the Iraqi defense ministry said. At least 21 more corpses were found - many with nooses around their neck - and mortar and bomb attacks killed at least four in Baghdad and surrounding towns. No American troops were hurt in the bombing about 18 miles east of the ancient city of Tal Afar, said the US military, which confirmed the attack but reported 30 deaths rather than 40.
