Suicide blast hits Iraqi province

Up to 12 people are killed in attack on police recruitment centre.

    But the patrols have increasingly been targeted by fighters, especially in provinces north of Baghdad, where US commanders say al-Qaeda has regrouped after being pushed out of other parts of Iraq.
