Several die in Iraq car bomb blast

At least 11 people are killed in explosion in northern town of Tal Afar.

In another roadside bomb attack outside the town of Fallujah – once the epicentre of the Sunni rebellion – six policemen,  including one officer – were wounded, Jumaa Hussein Hamadi, a police captain, said.
  
In March 2007, the mostly Turkmen town of Tal Afar saw one of the deadliest single attacks in Iraq since the US-led invasion four  years earlier when a suicide truck bomb killed more than 150 people.

Fighters have shown themselves still capable of carrying out large scale attacks across the country, but violence has been falling in recent months to its lowest level since the US-led invasion in 2003.
