Ambulances rush to the scene of a deadly suicide bombing in Iraq's Kirkuk. The blast killed at least 10 people and wounded more than 100 on Wednesday when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives-packed truck outside the office of the Kurdistan Democratic Party. Passersby and police helped carry the wounded out of the rubble and from wrecked vehicles after the huge blast tore through the commercial street. Another two people died and 20 others were wounded in another bombing outside a rival political party office in Tuz Khurmato, about 100 miles north of the capital. Tensions are high between Baghdad's Arab-led government and the Kurdistan enclave to the north, as disputes continue over several oilfields and areas like here in Kirkuk where they both claim jurisdiction.
