Iraq: Suicide bombs kill dozens


The town’s police chief says the blast occurred at about 1100 (0800 GMT) when the market was full of shoppers.

Talafar, about 150km (90 miles) from the Syrian border, is a centre for Iraqi insurgents and thought to be a staging-post for foreign fighters.

Police said there were eight other attacks in Baghdad on Tuesday, including another suicide car bombing, three roadside bombs and four drive-by shootings. Five people are reported killed.
