A provincial spokesman in Iraq said a triple suicide bombing killed at least 11 members of the security forces, The Associated Press reported Saturday.
Col. Mohammed al-Jabouri, the spokesman for the Salahuddin province police force, said three militants rammed explosives-laden vehicles into a checkpoint. Al-Jabouri confirmed that 34 other security officers were wounded.
The attack occurred as the local police chief and head of the provincial security committee were visiting the site, al-Jabouri said. Both officials escaped unharmed.
No group has claimed responsibility.
