A suicide bomber slammed his minibus Wednesday into blast walls at the offices of a key Kurdish political party in the country's north, killing a local party official and a guard, and wounding five other guards, the party said. The 10:30 a.m. (07:30 GMT) attack targeted a regional office of the Kurdish Democratic Party, or KDP, some 20 kilometers (13 miles) outside the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, according to the party's spokesman, Ahmed Tawfiq. Tawfiq said the blast walls prevented the attacker from hitting the building and inflicting more casualties. The wounded were taken to a nearby hospital. KDP is led by Kurdish official Masoud Barzani, president of the self-rule Kurdish region in northern Iraq.
