Suicide Bomber Kills Eight in Iraq
From the Wall Street Journal of Wed, 10 Dec 2014 08:28:15 EST

BAGHDAD—Iraqi officials said a suicide bomber driving a tanker truck targeted a security checkpoint in a village north of Baghdad, killing eight soldiers and Shiite militiamen.

Police officials said Wednesday’s attack took place in the village of Mikeshifa, near the city of Samarra, located about 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Samarra and its surrounding areas have been under constant attacks by militants from the Islamic State group.

A medic confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren’t authorized to talk to news media.

Iraq is facing its worst crisis since the 2011 withdrawal of U.S. troops, with the Islamic State group in control of large swaths of land in the country’s north and west.
