Suicide attack in Iraq's Makhmour kills three policemen

By Rudaw 31/3/2016
-
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - At least three Kurdish policemen were killed in a car bomb in the town of Makhmour, south of the Kurdistan Region capital, Erbill on Thursday, a Kurdish official told Rudaw.

"Three policemen have been killed and several others wounded," said Rashad Galai, a Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) official, in the town.

"It was a suicide bomb attack," he added.

The mayor of Makhmour also told Rudaw that the car bomb went off in front of the towns police station.

The Makhmour front has been defended by the Peshmerga from Islamic State assaults since that group's takeover of Mosul back in June 2014.

This month the Iraqi Army kicked off its long-anticipated battle for Mosul from Makhmour. The US Marines also set up a fire-base near the town to provide artillery fire support to the Iraqis.
