Deadly car bomb blast hits Mosul

At least eight people killed in a market in the east of the northern Iraqi city.

    Two suicide bombings in Tal Afar, not far from Mosul, killed 34 people and wounded around 60 on Thursday.

    A roadside bomb placed near a police checkpoint in the west of Mosul killed at least one officer the following day.

    Local officials have said the recent attacks have been aimed at stoking tensions in the region, which has a mixed population of Arabs, Kurds and ethnic Turkmen.

    The latest bombing came less than two weeks after US combat troops withdrew from the centres of all cities and major towns across the country.
