A suicide bomber blew himself up near a police station northeast of Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least eight people and wounding 30, police and hospital officials said. The attack occurred as local Iraqi police were gathered near the main gate of the station in Jalula with Kurdish troops who came to the area as part of a security crackdown, police said. The eight killed included four Iraqi police, two Kurdish troops and two civilians, police said. Ahmed Khatab, a doctor at the local hospital, confirmed the death toll and said eight of the 30 wounded were in critical condition.
