Suicide bombers kill scores in Iraq
by UPI

BAGHDAD -- Suicide truck bombers killed at least 120 people in a northern Iraq community, it was reported Tuesday.

Police said in addition to those killed at least 150 more people were wounded in three bombings, CNN said. But Iraqi army officials said at least 170 were dead and 200 wounded in four suicide attacks.

U.S. helicopters were helping to evacuate the wounded, officials said.

The bombings occurred in the town of Qahtaniya, which is populated mostly by members of the Yazidi sect who follow a pre-Islamic ancient religion.
