Bomb Blast Kills 6 Iraqi Policemen, Injures 10

Friday, 28 August 2015 05:44 AM EDT

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say an explosion has ripped through the parking lot of a Baghdad police station when a police bomb squad tried to defuse a car bomb while colleagues looked on, killing six and wounding 10.

Police and hospital officials say the blast took place in southeast Baghdad on Friday, a day after police in the area towed a suspicious car to the police station. The six killed were three bomb squad members and three policemen.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Baghdad has for years seen near daily attacks targeting civilians and security forces by car bombs, suicide attacks and roadside explosions. The attacks are mostly blamed on Sunni militants.
