Tuz Khurmatu killings

At least five people were killed and 29 others wounded Thursday in a truck bomb explosion at a Shiite Turkmen neighbourhood in the city of Tuz-Khurmato in northern central Iraq, a local police said.

The attack occurred in the morning when a booby-trapped truck ripped through the neighborhood of Aq-Sou, leaving eight houses badly damaged and set more than four vehicles ablaze.

The toll of the attacks could rise as ambulances, civilian and police vehicles were taking the victims to different hospitals and medical centers in the city about 200 km north of the capital Baghdad.

No group so far has claimed responsibility for the attack, but al-Qaida militant group was blamed previously for deadly attacks against Shiite Turkoman targets in Tuz-Khurmato.
