The Associated Press

BAGHDAD (AP) Iraqi authorities say a suicide bombing and mortar fire have killed another 15 people in the capital late Thursday, raising the day's death toll from attacks to 30.

Police officials say a suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a security checkpoint in Baghdad's northern Shiite district of Khazimiyah late Thursday. Minutes later, three mortar shells landed in different parts of the district, hitting houses and a bus station. The police said 31 people were wounded in the evening assault.

Earlier attacks in and around the capital killed 15 people.

Medical officials confirmed the causalities. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
