Suicide attacker kills soldiers on Iraqi base

A suicide bomber wearing an Iraqi army uniform blew himself up inside an Iraqi military base in Tikrit, Saddam Hussein's hometown, on Saturday, killing at least three Iraqi officers, officials said. The suspected insurgent, wearing explosives hidden beneath his uniform, killed a colonel, a major and a lieutenant, and wounded a lieutenant-colonel at the base in western Tikrit, said Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz Mohammed Jassim, a spokesman for Iraq's Interior Ministry.
