Blasts kill at least five in Iraq's Tikrit

BAGHDAD - At least five people were killed and 22 more wounded when two bombs exploded in the Iraqi city of Tikrit, a local health official said on Wednesday.
"There were two explosions. So far we have received five bodies," said Raed Ibrahim, head of the provincial health department. "Ambulances are still bringing more casualties."
Tikrit, the hometown of former dictator Saddam Hussein, is dominated by Sunni Muslims. Suspected Sunni Islamists tied to al Qaida have carried out frequent attacks in the town this year.
