'Al Qaeda Fingerprints' on Bombing of Children in Iraq
A suicide bomber drove a truck packed with explosives into the playground of a primary school in northern Iraq and blew himself up, killing 14 students and their headmaster on Sunday, Reuters reported police and medical sources said.
The attack followed a suicide bombing minutes earlier on a police station in the same town, Tel Afar, about 70 km (45 miles) northwest of Mosul city, where Sunni Islamists and other insurgents have a foothold. There were no casualties in the police station attack.
