2 suicide bombings kill 19, wound 45 in western Iraq

"Back-to-back suicide bombings at a government compound in this western Iraqi city on Monday killed 19 and wounded 45, police said, in an attack that heaped tragedy on the families of victims of a similar recent bombing.

Family members of 13 police and security workers killed just over two weeks ago in a car bombing outside the Anbar provincial compound had just arrived to receive promised government compensation for their deceased loved ones Monday when a suicide bomber drove a car loaded with explosives into the compound's front gate.

Three minutes later, as emergency workers rushed to the scene, a second bomber wearing a suicide vest detonated himself amid the rescue efforts.

Muhammad Fathiy, a provincial council member and the head of the security committee of Anbar province, which is predominantly Sunni, said many of the dead and the wounded were the family members of those who had lost relatives in the Dec. 12 attack. They had "shown up today to receive their compensation from the local government," he said.

The repeated attacks stand out on the government compound in Ramadi, where the Sunni Awakening militias are credited with helping to turn the tide against insurgents two years ago. The compound was bombed and the local governor among victims of an attack last year. The front gate of the compound was also bombed in July.

Brigadier Ali al-Dulaymee of the Anbar police said the attack contained hallmarks of previous al-Qaeda bombings in the area and suggested it might be a reaction to recent visits to the province by French, Korean and United Arab Emirates ambassadors to launch investment projects in the Sunni-majority city."

Car bomb hits southern Afghan city

"At least three people killed and a dozen others injured after an explosion in a crowded bank in Kandahar, the blast took place near Kabul Bank at a time of the month when many police officers were at the branch to draw cash.

"The bomb was apparently planted in a car near the bank,"

"An attack spotlighting instability in Afghanistan as the NATO-led fight against insurgents there approaches the start of its 10th year."

The bombing highlighted the precarious nature of security gains in Afghanistan, and the challenges the country faces in trying to quell an insurgency that has found a measure of safety in Afghanistan’s rugged terrain and porous borders."
