BAGHDAD - At least 12 people were wounded when a suicide bomber in a wheelchair blew himself up at a police station in the northern outskirts of Iraq's capital on Sunday, a spokesman for the Baghdad operations command said.
Major General Qassim al-Moussawi said the bomber set off his explosives vest in the police chief's office at the station in Tarmiya, 25 km (15 miles) north of Baghdad.
"This is the initial toll and we expect it to rise," Moussawi told Reuters.
He said the 12 wounded included nine policemen and three civilians.
An Interior Ministry source put the toll at two killed and 17 wounded, including nine policemen.
