At least 16 killed as police HQ attacked in Kirkuk
The remains of a vehicle (R) and a view of the police headquarters (L) are viewed after a car bombing followed by an assault by grenade-throwing gunmen on the police headquarters in a disputed northern city of Kirkuk, on February 3, 2013, killing some 30 people. The vehicle that was detonated in the center of the city was painted to appear as though it was a police car, and the militants who sought to seize the compound were dressed as policemen, witnesses said.
