A suicide car bomber killed two Iraqis and wounded five on Monday in an attack on a police patrol in an area of Baghdad where insurgents had kidnapped and murdered a defense lawyer in Saddam Hussein's trial last week, police said.
The bomb exploded at 6:30 a.m. in the northeastern neighborhood of Shaab, killing two policemen and wounding three policemen and two civilians, said police Lt. Malik Sultan.
In Kirkuk, 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Baghdad, a roadside bomb exploded at 8:30 a.m. near a car carrying Ibrahim Zangana, a senior member of Iraq's Kurdish Democratic Party, seriously wounding him, killing one of his bodyguards and injuring another one, said Brig. Gen. Sarhat Qadir, the commander of Kirkuk's police force.
