57 Killed in Separate Incidents; Iraqi Police Targeted

Wire services report that:

About 57 people were killed yesterday in separate incidents in Iraq. A powerful truck bomb exploded yesterday outside a police station [in predominantly Shiite Iskandariyah] south of Baghdad, killing up to 53 people and wounding scores of others, apparently all of them Iraqi including would-be recruits lined up to apply for jobs on the force. In Baghdad, four Iraqi policemen, one of them a major, were killed in an ambush yesterday in the capital’s Baladiyat district, the Interior Ministry announced. The assailants escaped.

Some 150 persons were wounded in the Iskandariyah attack, as well.
