Suicide truck bomber kills seven in Fallujah

A suicide truck bomb ripped through a line of vehicles waiting at a checkpoint Friday in Fallujah and killed at least seven civilians, while authorities in the capital discovered the bodies of six more men who were blindfolded, handcuffed and shot in the back of the head, police said. A powerful bomb hit a US tank in east Baghdad, setting it afire and blowing off the treads, police said. The American military said the M1A2 Abrams battle tank hit a roadside bomb and the crew escaped unharmed. And a policeman in Tikrit died disarming a roadside bomb, when a second explosive device detonated, also wounding two others.
