Police targeted in Iraq attack

Roadside bomb kills at least three policemen and wounds four in Kirkuk.

    Kirkuk, located at least 250km north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad has a mixed population of Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen and violence there is common.

    Long-standing Kurdish demands for the city to be incorporated into their autonomous region have fanned ethnic tensions.
