Car bomb explodes in Mosul

(Voices of Iraq) - At least two people were killed and 12 others were wounded as a car bomb exploded on Thursday afternoon in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, a police source said. "A car bomb detonated, this afternoon, in al-Farouq neighborhood, central Mosul, killing two persons, including a policeman, and wounding 12 more," Brigadier Abdul Karim al-Juburi, Ninewa police operations' chief, told the independent news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI).
The source added "among the wounded were four policemen and four children. The explosion occurred when al-Hadba police patrols tried to recover two bodies left inside a car parked in al-Farouq neighborhood," al-Juburi explained. The blast also caused damage to nearby houses and commercial shops, the source added. Mosul, capital city of Ninewa province, is 405 km north of Baghdad.
COMMENT: This may be a new tactic. It has not been reported before that dead bodies in a car have been used to trigger bombs. COMMENT ENDS.
