A speeding suicide truck bomber slammed into a police station in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Friday, killing one policeman and wounding 20 other people, authorities said. The bomber made a sharp turn as he approached the police station in the southwestern parts of the city, then rammed his truck through an iron barrier, hitting a sandbagged wall beyond it and detonating his vehicle near the station's main building. The blast shook the entire complex, witnesses and police said.
