Suicide bombings kill up to 17 in Iraq's Ramadi
Twin suicide bombings rocked a government compound in Iraq's western city of Ramadi, killing 17 people, a deputy interior minister said.
It was the second attack on the compound this month and the third bombing there in the past year.
"The death toll is 17 killed and between 50 and 60 wounded," Lieutenant General Hussein Kamal, a deputy interior minister, told reporters.
A police source said many of those wounded were policemen.
Anbar Governor Qassim Mohammedsaid the first blast happened when a minibus exploded outside the compound and the second was caused by a suicide bomber on foot, disguised as a policeman.
