A suicide car bomber blew himself up Wednesday and wounded four civilians while trying to hit an Iraqi army base in the northern city of Mosul, an Iraqi army officer said. During clashes with insurgents that followed in a nearby area in this city, 250 kilometers (155 miles) north of Baghdad, Iraqi troops killed 14 fighters, while a roadside bomb at the same location killed one Iraqi soldier and wounded three others, Iraqi army Brig. Ahmed Zebari said. There were no casualties inside the base, which is located in a residential area of the city, Zebari said. Elsewhere, another suicide bomber blew himself up overnight near a US army checkpoint outside Muqdadiyah, about 90 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad, killing one civilian and wounding five others, including three women, a police official said.
